Gregory David Robert’s epic debut novel,Shantaram, introduced millions of readers to the heart of India through Lin, an Australian fugitive working as a passport forger for a branch of the Bombay mafia. InThe Mountain Shadow, the long awaited sequel, Lin must find his way in a Bombay run by a different generation of mafia dons, playing by a different set of rules. It has been two years since the events inShantaram, and since Lin lost two people he had come to love: his father figure, Khaderbhai, and his soul mate, Karla, now married to a handsome Indian media tycoon. Lin returns from a smuggling trip to a city that seems to have changed too much, too soon. Many of his old friends are long gone, his girlfriend--the radiant American Lisa--is spending more and more time at her art gallery, and the new mafia leadership has become entangled in increasingly violent intrigues. But Lin can’t leave the Island City: Karla, and one final mission, won’t let him go. A love story of hope, humor, and the philosophical quest for wisdom,The Mountain Shadow is a sublime, all-consuming novel of our extraordinary human struggle for love and faith, truth and redemption.
