“A fast-paced, no nonsense novel.”
TO use a journalists’ cliché, this book is a ’scoop’; the ‘real’ deal about the unholy nexus between the underworld, the government and the Fourth Estate. A fast-paced, no nonsense novel, it explains in surprising detail, the intertwined fellowship between the system and the ‘unsystematic’ underworld. It comes as no surprise that the novel is by an accomplished crime reporter himself. The crisp chapters captivate your attention without trying to glorify characters.
Oswald Pereira has drawn in from his vast experience in journalism while writing the book. The book gives a ringside view of journalism.
