The Last Taxi Ride: A Ranjit Singh Novel

A.X. Ahmad. Minotaur, $24.99 (368p) ISBN 978-1-250-01686-7
In chapter one of Ahmad’s solid sequel to 2013’s The Caretaker, New York City cabbie Ranjit Singh is thrilled to realize that his fare is Shabana Shah, a famous Bollywood actress, who tips him generously when he delivers her to the Dakota, where she’s staying in a friend’s apartment. By coincidence, the Dakota doorman is Mohan Kumar, a junior colleague from Ranjit’s army days in India. That evening, the two old friends meet in a Dakota storage room, where they drink Scotch and reminisce. The next morning, the police show up at Ranjit’s cab company and claim that fingerprint evidence places him at the scene of Shabana’s murder in her apartment the night before. And Mohan, the one who can vouch for Ranjit, has disappeared. Ranjit, ever the gallant Sikh, makes a winning hero in a mystery revealing of how Indians do business—legitimate or otherwise—in New York and around the world. Agent: Stephanie Abou, Foundry Media.
