The Don of Darbhanga - PaperbackThe story begins with the introduction of a teenage boy from a fearless, Italian, elite Sicilian family, who takes revenge and becomes the boss of the Italian American Mafia in New York. He becomes nothing less than a ruthless crusader of his mission to become the most powerful man in the underworld. His family life changes when he meets an Indian boy who is armed with exceptional oratory skills and has spectacular charisma. The story then shifts to an Indian family that is warring between morality and ego. After many thrilling incidents and crime scenes, the story turns out to be something entirely different. Initially, the reader might feel that the premise of the story is located in USA. However, it eventually branches into the Indian city of Darbhanga where it becomes an international affair. The story is full of twists and turns and so much intrigue that the readers will be completely drawn in, feeling like they are a part of the story. The story glorifies human feelings and relationships and gives an alternate perception to life. On one hand it throws light on the lives of people who fight with guns and are shrewd for the sake of power and money, and on the other it talks about individuals who always stand for their morality. The story tells how both kinds of people coexist, bound by love and relationships. The story runs from 1930’s to present day, connecting the dots between Palermo, New York and Darbhanga. It is definitely better than other mafia fiction titles that only talk about crime and murder.
