In September 1838 a storm blows up on the Indian Ocean and the Ibis, a ship carrying a consignment of convicts and indentured laborers from Calcutta to Mauritius, is caught up in the whirlwind. On the grand scale of an historical epic, River of Smoke follows its storm-tossed characters to the crowded harbours of China. There, despite efforts to stop them, ships from Europe and India exchange their cargoes of opium for boxes of tea, silk, porcelain and silver. Among them are opium merchant Bahram Modi, his estranged half-Chinese son Ah Fatt, the orphaned Paulette and a motley collection of others. All struggle to cope with their losses - and for some, unimaginable freedoms, in 19th century Canton
Six suspects by Vikas Swarup( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vicky Rai, the playboy son of a prominent Indian Cabinet minister has been shot dead by persons unknown at his farmhouse (No. 6) outside Delhi. Six people were partying at his house immediately preceding his death - each one equally liable to have pulled the trigger. In this elaborate mystery reminiscent of Agatha Christie, we the readers are the detectives, as six suspects' lives unravel before our eyes - a bureaucrat, a cannibal, an idiot, an actress, a politician, and a nobody. Each character has their own chapter, three times over, the first being under Suspects; the second under Motives; the third - when all is revealed - under Evidence. Vikas Swarup's finely schematic and audacious plotting will delight the many fans of his acclaimed "Q&A."
