It’s 2004. The Taliban, in the earlier novel, Bollywood, Beds and Beyond had captured Shilpa Moray, known as the Tigress. In this new action-packed sequel, we follow the story of her escape from the hostile Taliban, her rescue by the British forces, and eventually, her being taken on by MI6 who trick her into acting as their special agent. Shilpa’s story takes us into the inner workings of the MI6, the CIA, TV news channels, the terrifying heartland of the Islamic terrorists and the brutal wars in Afghanistan and the Middle East as a TV reporter.
But Shilpa is not just an agent; she is also a lover. Shilpa’s love affairs were always torrid and in this new book she does not let the reader down. Along with her amorous adventures, Shilpa confronts the corrupt builders and bureaucracy in India. Their shocking efforts to buy and sell properties are thrilling, frustrating and funny at the same time.
Murder, illicit love and corruption– Shilpa’s adventures have all this and more. Her fascinating travels take us around the world. We don’t know till the last page if Shilpa will resolve her problems or go down like so many others before
