The underworld has new faces, working for and against Dawood Ibrahim, the shadowy, manipulative figure who pulls its strings.
Dawood's own deputy-turned-arch rival Chhota Rajan, thug-turned-politician Arun Gawli, Amar (Raavan) Naik and his engineer brother Ashwin Naik, and a host of other characters, big and small, walk the pages of this compelling history of the Maharashtrian mobsters who were once dubbed 'amchi muley'(our boys) by former Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray.
Also included are fascinating stories of the famous - and infamous - policemen and 'encounter specialists' who took on the gangs with great success and not many scruples. Meticulously researched and thrillingly told by the acclaimed authority on the underworld, this brand new paperback edition of Byculla to Bangkok captures the humble beginnings of organized crime mafias that held Mumbai to ransom through the last decades of the twentieth century.
