It started with curiosity. Then obsession. Finally criminality.
A group of friends suspect that George could be a very dangerous criminal and convince themselves they needed to do something about it. Instead of following legal channels with their suspicions, they incorporate ‘M’ organization to look into the matter. They preferred ‘M’ to the police because they wanted the suspicious-looking George to be subjected to real painful extra-legal punishment if ‘found guilty’.
‘M’ also conclude George is not who he said he was and was most probably a person who would be a danger to them too. ‘M’ overreacts and sends a female agent to murder George. She fumbles and fails to accomplish the task.
George discovers the persons behind the assassination attempt are no ordinary people- they are too highly placed in the social-economic ladder.
Because of his unusual wretched circumstances, George believes no one would believe his story. He decides to lie low, hoping that ‘M’ would soon realize their mistake and let him live his simple life peacefully….
It’s about vigilantism gone out of control.
Chief to the head of 'George Team', Ronnie: "This has been going on for far too long. How much more time do you need to finish this thing?" Ronnie: "The problem sir is that the subject knows we want him...you know..." Chief: "So what? Tell me what you are doing to finish this oaf, not what he knows." Ronnie: "We are working to make him jobless and homeless first. The rest will then be easy." Chief: "Four years ago, you told me you will complete the job in four weeks. That never happened..." Ronnie: "Sir, some..." Chief: "Don't interrupt me! Two years ago, you were to finish the job in 2 months. That didn't happen. Tell me what you are doing different this time."
It’s a book about power exercised without control.
