Dust jacket Blurb: The late Mrs. Shoba Popatkar was a beloved national figure, known throughout the subcontinent for her lifelong commitment to virutuous causes. But now Her life has been brutally snuffed out. Inspector Ghote feels only too keenly the official pressure to come up with a simple solution. Vividly evokes the sights and sounds of India.
I say: This is more philosophy than mystery. It delves into the sometimes imperceptible line between right and wrong using Hinduism as the vehicle. A good travelogue of Benares, India.
