This book talks about the police informers(zero) in the Mumbai underworld,their life style and their highly intelligent process of information gathering.It also gives a picture of Mumbai underworld,the rise of terrorism in it and the ineligibility of Mumbai police to act in this new terrain.There is hint of the current rivalry between the central intelligency and the Mumbai police ATS.Overall this book contains a lot of real facts and the author of the book has already been murdered for "knowing...more
Egged on by Hussain Zaidi's Dongri to Dubai, I picked up my copy of this J Dey book, relinquishing somehwere under a pile of other unread books.

An average book. Disheartened that there are incidents which have been mentioned incorrectly. Such as, Rohit Verma was killed in Bangkok and not in an encounter in mumbai in 2008. Gangster vicky malhotra was arrested after ducking police forces for 15 years in the year 2005 in New Delhi, then how can he be there in 1997. Good book but distorted facts.
