When Daru Shezad gets himself fired from his banking job, he instantly removes himself from the ranks of Pakistan's cellphone-toting elite and sets in motion the tragicomedy that will drag him into a life of drugs and crime. Nor can he help falling in love with his oldest friend's wife, to whom he is drawn like moth to flame. But when a heist goes awry, Daru finds himself on trial for a murder he may not have committed. His uncertain fate mirrors that of Pakistan itself, animated by nuclear weapons and sapped by corruption.

An arresting look at the underbelly of modern Pakistan, and a novel which may be slightly outside many readers' comfort zone. But don't let that stop you! ...This author also provides nuanced political and economic bytes that can make you wish for more.

Not as interesting as The Reluctant Fundamentalist but flashes of the work to come are in there.
