"In life you never get what you deserve. You get what you negotiate. A business empire worth ten billion dollars. This is the tantalizing offer made by Vinay Mohan Acharya, one of India's richest men, to Sapna Sinha, a simple salesgirl in an electronicsstore in downtown Delhi. She can be the next CEO of his incredibly huge and profitable company. There is only one catch--she needs to pass seven tests from the "textbook of life." Thus begins the most challenging journey Sapna has ever undertaken, one that will take her from her swanky showroom to the heat and dust of India's backstreets and villages. Along the way she encounters a host of memorable personalities, from a vain Bollywood superstar to a kleptomaniac Gandhian. But are the seven tests real or is Acharya playing a game driven by a perverse fantasy? Vikas Swarup, acclaimed author of Slumdog Millionaire and Six Suspects, has written a compelling, suspenseful tale about the lure of money and the power of dreams. The Accidental Apprentice is international crime fiction at its most entertaining"--
Six suspects by Vikas Swarup( Book )

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."
