It's that time of the year again!

The annual ICT T-20 carnival has come to town. On the agenda this year is more than just cricket as Shaurya Chauhan, the skipper of Capital Cavaliers soon discovers. Shaurya is going through a rough patch. His batting isn't clicking and his captaincy is being questioned, what with the team close to being knocked out. Plus, Manu Dayal, the team's dare-devil batsman, is breathing down Shaurya's neck, waiting in the wings to take over the captaincy. As Shaurya contends with these challenges on the professional front and the end of a love affair on the personal, he becomes embroiled in something deeper and even more sinister.

The coach of the Cavaliers, Howard Jensen, is found with his head knocked in and Shaurya is the prime suspect. Then the police start sniffing around on account of match-fixing allegations and questions as to whether the two are connected all seem to point to Shaurya's complicity again.

Mitakshara, an intrepid crime reporter, is at first convinced of Shaurya's guilt and is out to get him. But soon, she begins to suspect that things are not as they seem on the surface and Shaurya is just one link in a chain that involves bookies, businessmen, the police and of course, more than a handful of cricketers.

Vikas Singh is a self-confessed word addict, who obsessively reads anything that comes his way, be it an old newspaper or the label on a cough syrup bottle. An Army kid, he spent most of his early life moving from one place to another, with books being his only constant companion. A love-affair that is on even today, with the repertoire varying from military history to Larry Gonnick's cartoon histories and non-fiction to pulp fiction. He pursued a degree in History Honours from St. Stephen's College and then did a post-graduate diploma in Marketing Management before embarking on a career in journalism. But plots and stories continued to fire his imagination. Now a senior journalist, Vikas lives in Delhi with his wife and daughter, who are equally enthralled by literature, in a house which seems to have more books than furniture. Having previously co-authored a brief, breezy history of knowledge, 'The Know of Things', with Derek O'Brien, Jug Suraiya and Bunny Suraiya, The Big Fix is Vikas's first novel, though definitely not his last.
