Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aravind Adiga's first novel since his Man Booker Prize-winning best seller The White Tiger (Amazing . . . One of the most powerful books I've read in decades --Deirdre Donahue, USA Today): a stunning, darkly comic story of greed and murder that lays bare the teeming metropolis of Mumbai.

Real estate developer Dharmen Shah's offer to buy out the residents of Vishram Society--a formerly respectable, now crumbling apartment complex that abuts the infamous Dharavi slums--is more than generous. But one man stands in the way of Shah's luxury high- rise: Masterji, a retired schoolteacher who will not leave his home in Vishram's Tower A. Shah is a dangerous man to refuse, but as the demolition deadline looms, Masterji's neighbors--friends who have become enemies, acquaintances turned co- conspirators--may stop at nothing to score their payday.

An electrifying, suspense-filled story of money and power, luxury and deprivation, peopled by brilliantly drawn, unforgettable characters, Last Man in Tower exposes the hearts and minds of the everymen and women of a great, booming city--ordinary people pushed to their limits in a place that knows none.

From the Hardcover edition.
