About the Author

Rahul Raina divides his time between Oxford and Delhi. He is twenty-eight years old and splits his time be-tween running a consultancy in England, and working for charities and teaching English in India. How to Kidnap the Rich, his first novel, was written in the hundred degree-plus heat of New Delhi.


"Rahul Raina's voice crackles with wit and the affecting exuberance of youth. His ripping good story grabs you on page one and doesn't let go, taking you on a monstrously funny and unpredictable wild ride through a thousand different Delhis at top speed. How To Kidnap the Rich roars with brilliance, freshness and so much heart." --Kevin Kwan, New York Times bestselling author of the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy and Sex and Vanity
"White Tiger meets Caddyshack the movie in Raina's lively novel, brimming with rat-a-tat-tat wit, breezy prose and a keen observation of colorism, casteism and social inequity. Unputdownable!"--Alka Joshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Henna Artist
Brutally funny and fast-paced, this debut from Rahul Raina proves he is a star in the making.--Nikesh Shukla, author of Coconut Unlimited
"Part crime novel, part satire on modern India and told with authenticity, razor-sharp wit and a biting turn of phrase, Rahul Raina's How to Kidnap the Rich is a book I've been waiting a long time for. I can't remember the last time I read such an assured debut. Raina writes like he's been doing this all his life. Ladies and gentlemen, it's time to welcome a new star to the world of international crime fiction."--Abir Mukherjee, author of A Rising Man
"Fans of My Sister the Serial Killer, Parasite and Crazy Rich Asians will be enthralled by this riotous tale from the very first line. . . . A hugely entertaining and unique debut that satirically dissects India's inequalities."--Cosmopolitan UK
