The Last Taxi Ride by A.X. Ahmad

The Last Taxi Ride; A Ranjit Singh Novel by A. X. Ahmad --- 361 pages

The second book in a new mystery series featuring an ex-Indian Army captain who now ekes out a living driving a taxi in New York City.

The story involves an Indian film star fallen on hard times, the Mumbai mob's efforts to infiltrate the large East Indian expatriate community in New York, and an ingenious new form of human trafficking. Both the taxi driver brotherhood and the
vibrant culture of the East Indian neighborhoods are vividly portrayed. The story is an interesting combination of crime fiction and a romantic subplot straight out of a Bollywood film.

The author was born and raised in India, educated in the United States, and has worked as an architect. The first book in the series is The Caretaker.
