Devil in Pinstripes is Ravi Subramanian’s third novel after “If God was a Banker” and “I bought the Monk’s Ferrari”. But this is his second attempt at talking about his life and experiences at Citibank which he did pretty well in “If God was a Banker”. So does his third book manage to capture the interest of the readers? Let’s see.
At the outset, the reader is introduced to Amit Sharma, your usual IIM types and his wife of 13 years, Chanda. Amit is a high flying executive at New York International Bank – NYB (Read Citibank) and Chanda who though a biotechnologist but finally decides to shift her career because of marriage and moves to Standard Chartered Bank. Aditya Bhatnagar (A bit similar to Aditya Rao in his first book) whose his mentor and the top guy at NYB and Gowri, the head at NYB Financial Services (Read CitiFinancial) are other two main characters in the story. Boardroom politics, backbiting, autocracy, corporate governance, ethics in business – Devil in Pinstripes has it all.
