Show Me A Hero is a story about Prashant Padmanabhan, an engineer graduate, who is rich, confident and certain of his filmmaking talents, as he gets ready to make a movie on his cricketing idol, Ali Khan, whose career crashed in controversy afer he walked out in a World Cup final.

Meanwhile, in a grimy apartment in a crowded part of Delhi, his former classmate Vaibhav struggles to cope with the burdens of adult existence. Beset by self-doubt and loneliness, unsure of his place in a daunting society, he searches desperately for the path of least resistance.

But in agreeing to help with Prashant's movie, he finds that he has stepped into danger. As the boys delve into the life of a man who was never shy of making enemies, they come face-t-face with their own vulnerability.

A tragedy, a murder mystery, and a coming-of-age tale, Show Me a Hero is the layered story of innocent youth finding the courage to fight.

Aditya Sudarshan is a fiction writer. He is the author of a novel, A Nice Quiet Holiday (Westland Books, 2009), a play, Sensible People, and several short stories and television scripts.

According to Aditya, Show Me A Hero is a book about a group of youngsters who are trying to make a movie on this controversial cricketer. He says the story has many elements, and by the standards of conventional crime fiction, it moves slowly.

Show Me A Hero is a book of that kind which compels the reader to put it down after going through few pages and reflect.

The author has done an admirable job overall.
