Keting always views his fellow humans with tongue firmly in cheek. This particular mystery gives us a humorous look at Indians, Englishmen, and the ways of all of us.

Why is there a dead man on the billiard table at that bastion of respectability, the oh-so-English Ooty Club? That's what Inspector Ghote is trying to find out. Summoned from Bombay to the tiny hill station of Ootacamund, home of the famous Ooty Club, the great detective (and lovable bumbler) is expected to discover who murdered a club servant on the very billiard table where snooker was invented. Taxed by the ingenuity of the killer--and the oddness of his surroundings--Ghote struggles with the puzzler that is his most charming and hilarious appearance to date.
