'Every day millions of people -- the rich the poor and the many foreign visitors -- are hunting for ways to get their business done in modern India. If they search in the right places and offer the appropriate price there is always a facilitator who can get the job done. This book is a sneak preview of those searches the middlemen who do those jobs and the many opportunities that the fast-growing economy offers.'

Josy Joseph draws upon two decades as an investigative journalist to expose a problem so pervasive that we do not have the words to speak of it. The story is big: that of treacherous business rivalries of how some industrial houses practically own the country of the shadowy men who run the nation's politics. The story is small: a village needs a road and a hospital a graveyard needs a wall people need toilets.

A Feast of Vultures is an unprecedented multiple-level inquiry into modern India and the picture it reveals is both explosive and frightening. Within these covers is unimpeachable evidence against some of the country's biggest business houses and political figures and the reopening of major scandals that have shaped its political narratives. Through hard-nosed investigations and the meticulous gathering of documentary evidence Joseph clinically examines and irrefutably documents the non-reportable.

It is a troubling narrative but also a call to action and a cry for change. A tour de force through the wildly beating heart of post-socialist India the book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the large unwieldy truth about this nation.
