How to Kidnap the Rich


How to Kidnap the Rich is the outrageous and fast-paced debut from Rahul Raina.

Set in Delhi, this is the story of Ramesh, a self-styled ‘examinations consultant’. When Ramesh takes an exam for Rudi – an intolerably lazy but rich teenager – he accidently scores the highest mark in the country and propels Rudi into stardom. Ramesh devises a scheme to extort money from Rudi’s parents, but his plan backfires and spirals into chaos. Kidnapping, double-kidnapping and reverse kidnapping ensues. Can Ramesh make it out of this mess alive?

This is a thrilling read for fans of Crazy Rich Asians, My Sister the Serial Killer and Parasite. Reviews are calling it ‘an exciting blend of crime caper, satire, love story and social commentary’ (Independent), ‘impressively entertaining’ (Sunday Times) and ‘a wildly funny ride through a modern-day India’ (Red).

If you’re looking for a fun, page-turning read, look no further!
