This is the age of vice, where pleasure and power are everything, and the family ties that bind can also kill.

New Delhi, 3 a.m. A speeding Mercedes jumps the kerb, 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.


"The book has all the energy of a high-concept crime thriller . . . Ill-fated love and toxic family power struggles provide emotional drive for this big dynastic saga of organised crime that could be India's answer to The Godfather . . . Not so much a slow burn as a constantly sparking fuse . . . Age of Vice certainly does not disappoint as a commercial crime thriller . . . but it deserves literary plaudits as well, for its depth and relevance, and for proving once more that the novel remains the supreme medium of long-form narrative drama for us to binge upon." -  ― Guardian

"Kapoor's sprawling yet propulsiveblockbuster of a novel is an addictive and socially conscious thriller portraying contemporary India in mesmerizing complexity." ― Oprah Daily

"The most dazzling explosions to herald 2023 come from Deepti Kapoor's novel Age of Vice . . .For days, I was torn between gorging or rationing out the chapters to make them last. Finally free from the book's grip, now all I want to do is get others hooked . . . I have only one word of advice: Hurry." - Washington Post 

"Cinematic...A luxe thriller...As a storyteller, Kapoor is a natural." ― New York Times
