In the violent and ruthless world of IndoCanadian gangs, Ruby Pandher is on his way up. A selfdescribed daaku (Punjabi for outlaw), Ruby learns young that might, in the form of hid drunken father’s fists, is right and that money is easier to steal than earn. Ruby’s smalltime scams reveal a knack for leadership and after his first stint in youth detention, the bigtimers start to notice his potential.
Soon, Ruby is doing collections for IndoCanadian drug dealers. Now "known to police," Ruby is drawn into a gang war just as he’s trying to beat the rap on weapons charges and theft while simultaneously organizing a jailhouse smuggling ring. On the cusp of adulthood, and surrounded by Punjabi terrorists, bikers and IndoCanadian gangsters, Ruby is drawn like a moth to the glamour of the power, money, and drugs.
A story of betrayal, coldblooded murder and the rise and eventual fall of one gangster, Daaku is a bulletriddled grand tour of IndoCanadian gangland.
