About the Book

The order has arrived; Sreedhar has a hit to carry out. Just as he has in all his years as a professional henchman. Only, things don’t go to plan. Hitman and victim end up spending time together. As the waiting game winds ever tighter, the two would-be adversaries engage in an intense conversation about life, love, compulsions and of lives lived wrong. And suddenly, Sreedhar is not so sure… Set in the Bangalore underworld of the ‘90s, The Gangster’s Gita—published in Kannada as Edegarike (also a cult Kanna- da film) and available for the first time in an English transla- tion—delves deep into the mind of the criminal. A real-life killer translates his own experiences into a work of art in this visceral and palpably real crime novel. A daring literary excursion, and perhaps a first in literary history.
