A gripping read, refreshingly away from all the Mumbai mafia. Delhi as the scene of crime is beautifully portrayed through the eyes of insiders and outsiders. Good work on investigative journalism.
The Price You Pay is a racy-pacy crime thriller that takes you in the world of crime journalism.
This is a superb book - quite literally, unputdownable. For a debut novel, it is awesome. One of the best debut novels I have read in a long, very long time. The pace is relentless - which is a marvel, as the genre is not one which lends itself to rapid pace. The plot is plausible, and entirely feasible in the real world, That is the clincher.
A fast crime thriller which dwells in the grinds of journalism and the murky waters of Piloce and crime
The book reads well, keeps the reader on tenterhooks and unfolds brilliantly nicely building the suspense as events unfold in Abhishek’s career. But the climax is a downer. Had it been a bit different and a little less filmy, this book would have been outstanding. It is still a very good read.

Abhishek Dutta is a rookie, with some experience of editing a magazine called Secure Now. On an impulse Amir gives Abhishek a chance at a job.
