Item Details

"Based on actual events, The Story of My Assassins tells the story of a journalist who learns that the police have captured five hitmen on their way to kill him. Landing like a bombshell on his comfortable life, just as he's started a steamy affair with a brilliant woman, the news prompts him to launch an urgent investigation into the lives of his aspiring murderers-a ragtag group of street thugs and village waifs-and their mastermind. Who wanted him dead, and why? But the investigation forces him to reexamine his own life, too-to confront his own notion of himself, his job, and his treatment of the women in his life, as well as his own complex feelings about the country that crafted his would-be killers."--Dust jacket.

Some violent parts, but made India make sense to me finally.

The author was interviewed, in Jaipur, India, by Eleanor Wachtel, the host of CBC Radio's "Writers & Company" program. The interview was broadcasted on the February 24, 2013 program; and may be heard anytime by going to the program's web site and clicking on the podcast for this date. The author talks about his life surrounded by bodyguards; and his most recent novel.
