After winning the 2008 Man Booker Prize for his debut novel, The White Tiger, Indian-born author Aravind Adiga will publish his second venture Last Man in the Tower in early 2011, the author's publisher said.

The Indian rights for Adiga's new novel have been acquired by HarperCollins India.

Unlike his first novel which was set in New Delhi, Adiga's second book is set in the business capital of the country, Mumbai.

V.K. Karthika, chief editor and publisher at HarperCollins India, said: "Last Man in the Tower is a sweeping novel about contemporary India, more particularly Mumbai. Adiga's characters are unforgettable, his prose riveting."

The fourth Indian-born author to win the Booker Prize - others being Salman Rushdie, Arundhati Roy and Kiran Desai, Adiga had over 150,000 copies of the hardback version of his The White Tiger sold since its publication in April 2008.

The paperback version of the book is due to be out in December this year.
