One of the most powerful books Ive 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 Shahs 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 Shahs luxury high- rise: Masterji, a retired schoolteacher who will not leave his home in Vishrams Tower A. Shah is a dangerous man to refuse, but as the demolition deadline looms, Masterjis 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.
