Bombay Monsoon by James W. Ziskin

1975 Danny is bold, a bit brash and new to Bombay. He has come as a journalist at a time of press restructions with Indira Gandhi trying to hold onto power, in whatever way possible. The government does not like criticsm and very soon Danny is drawn into a maelstrom of intrigue, not just political but into a world of drug dealing, manipulative deals, ruthless big time dealers who will not hesitate to kill any opponent. in addition he is attracted to a local girl, who is already someone else's mistress. Not the best way to cement alliances in a very fast moving world. Danny is in way over his head and to extricate himself and come out alive is hard. The story is fast moving, covering terrorism, drug trafficking, corruption in the government and whether the woman whom Danny is in love with is using him for her own reasons. Nicely displaying the naivety of a newly arrived American and how gullible one can be when transported out of one's usual environment, the story is fast paced and interesting.
