內容簡介

傳奇暢銷書《項塔蘭》最新續集,再度帶領讀者回到孟買,一起探索生命與愛的真義。

Regret is a nicer self that we send into the past from time to time, even though we know it's too late to change what we said, or did.

(遺憾是我們不時地將比較好的自我送往過去,即使知道無論我們曾經說過什麼、或做過什麼,想要改變,都已經太遲了。)

曾經感動成千上萬讀者的暢銷力作《項塔蘭》,是作者的自傳體小說,描述一名曾在澳洲大學教授哲學與文學的年輕講師,成為罪犯逃往印度,在孟買貧民窟中當懸壺濟世的醫生而生存下來,後又加入幫派,在往後無數的遭遇中,遇見此生的導師黑幫老大哈德漢,以及有著天使翅膀的摯愛卡拉,而漸漸了解愛與生命的真諦,並成為不折不扣的孟買靈魂。

《項塔蘭》在十多年前上市之初,即獲得百萬讀者的喜愛,其對孟買充滿顏色與氣味的描寫、高潮迭起的豐富情節、以及主角貫穿全書、帶有哲思的第一人稱敘述,在在打中讀者的心,讓人深陷書中情節而無法自拔。

在十多年後再度出版的續篇The Mountain Shadow再度帶領讀者和主角Lin一起回到孟買,為了生存,再度回歸他的老勾當—走私,然而,曾經熟悉的城市早已變樣,新一代的黑幫勢力則越趨殘暴及狡詐。全新的項塔蘭續集,林將重新學習什麼是愛,什麼又是命運與抉擇,並該如何延續他與卡拉及孟買未了的情緣。

The first glimpse of the sea on Marine Drive filled my heart, if not my head. I turned away from the red shadow. I stopped thinking of that pyramid of killers, and Sanjay's improvidence. I stopped thinking about my own part in the madness. And I rode, with my friends, into the end of everything.

Shantaram introduced millions of readers to a cast of unforgettable characters through Lin, an Australian fugitive, working as a passport forger for a branch of the Bombay mafia. In The Mountain Shadow, the long-awaited sequel, Lin must find his way in a Bombay run by a different generation of mafia dons, playing by a different set of rules.

It has been two years since the events in Shantaram, and since Lin lost two people he had come to love: his father figure, Khaderbhai, and his soul mate, Karla, married to a handsome Indian media tycoon. Lin returns from a smuggling trip to a city that seems to have changed too much, too soon. Many of his old friends are long gone, the new mafia leadership has become entangled in increasingly violent and dangerous intrigues, and a fabled holy man challenges everything that Lin thought he'd learned about love and life. But Lin can't leave the Island City: Karla, and a fatal promise, won't let him go.
