THE HEIST OF A LIFETIME.

About the book:

Vagh Pratap Singh, aka the Captain, is conman extraordinaire. From transporting illegal merchandise and stealing cars to breaking safes, he’s done it all. But now, in his fortieth year, he’s ready to retire.

So when Udhham Kumar, a crooked politician from Uttar Pradesh, commissions the Captain to track down and steal Poppy Flowers, a Vincent van Gogh painting that has been smuggled into India after it went missing from a museum in Egypt in 2010, the Captain knows that he’s found his last and biggest case.

But a dangerous gangster is now in possession of the painting, and the Captain is being followed by Udhham Kumar’s ruthless associates, greedy for both money and power. As the odds against him begin to stack up, the Captain realizes that his last heist might not be as easy as he’d imagined.

Vish Dhamija’s latest, an ingeniously crafted page-turner about an audacious modern-day heist, is crime fiction at its finest.
