The Mountain Shadow
Shantaram introduced millions of readers to a cast of unforgettable characters through Lin, an Australian fugitive, working as a passport forger in Bombay. In The Mountain Shadow, Lin must find his way in a city run by a different generation of mafia dons, playing by a different set of rules.
It has been two years since the events in Shantaram, and since Lin lost his soul mate Karla, now married to a media tycoon. On his return from a smuggling trip, Lin discovers that the mafia leadership has become entangled in increasingly violent and dangerous intrigues. Meanwhile, an encounter with a fabled holy man challenges everything he thought he’d learned about love and life. But Lin can’t leave the Island City: Karla, and a fatal promise, won’t let him go.
