Summary

Seleccionado por el Club de Lectura de Good Morning America

«Un viaje vertiginoso. [...] Una novela frenética y llena de color que pone de manifiesto el nuevo orden jerárquico mundial.» —Booklist


Un atracón de gran literatura que se disfruta por puro placer.

Nueva Delhi, invierno, 3 de la madrugada. Un Mercedes que circula a toda velocidad invade la acera, atropellando y matando a cinco personas. Es el vehículo de un millonario, pero al volante solo encuentran a un criado en estado de conmoción, incapaz de explicar cómo o por qué ha cometido este crimen. Y tampoco puede prever el oscuro drama que está a punto de desencadenarse.
 
Entre mansiones lujosas, negocios depredadores y tramas políticas, tres vidas se entrelazan peligrosamente: Sunny es el rico heredero, un playboy que sueña con eclipsar a su padre; Ajay es su criado y hombre para todo; y Neda es la periodista inquisitiva que se debate entre su ética y sus deseos. Frente a una trama arrolladora alimentada por el placer, la codicia, la violencia y la venganza, estos tres personajes se encuentran atados entre sí por unos lazos que pueden servirles de redención o destruirlos para siempre.
 
Mitad suspense, mitad saga familiar, La Edad del Vicio lleva al lector desde los arrabales de Uttar Pradesh a la energética metrópoli de Nueva Delhi, con una trama adictiva de gángsters y amantes, falsos amigos, romances secretos y corrupción.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Good Morning America Book Club Selection


This is the age of vice, where money, pleasure, and power are everything, and the family ties that bind can also kill.
 
New Delhi, 3 a.m. A speeding Mercedes jumps the curb and in the blink of an eye, five people are dead. It’s a rich man’s car, but when the dust settles there is no rich man at all, just a shell-shocked servant who cannot explain the strange series of events that led to this crime. Nor can he foresee the dark drama that is about to unfold.

Deftly shifting through time and perspective in contemporary India, Age of Vice is an epic, action-packed story propelled by the seductive wealth, startling corruption, and bloodthirsty violence of the Wadia family — loved by some, loathed by others, feared by all.

In the shadow of lavish estates, extravagant parties, predatory business deals and calculated political influence, three lives become dangerously intertwined: Ajay is the watchful servant, born into poverty, who rises through the family’s ranks. Sunny is the playboy heir who dreams of outshining his father, whatever the cost. And Neda is the curious journalist caught between morality and desire. Against a sweeping plot fueled by loss, pleasure, greed, yearning, violence and revenge, will these characters’ connections become a path to escape, or a trigger of further destruction? 

Equal parts crime thriller and family saga, transporting readers from the dusty villages of Uttar Pradesh to the urban energy of New Delhi, Age of Vice is an intoxicating novel of gangsters and lovers, false friendships, forbidden romance, and the consequences of corruption. It is binge-worthy entertainment at its literary best.
