"Another brilliant chapter in this highly engaging series."
The Parsees are one of the communities that make up India. Originally from Persia they follow the Zoroastrian religion and have over the centuries contributed greatly to the economic and commercial success of the city of Mumbai.
Chief Inspector Chopra (Retd.), now owner of The Baby Ganesh Detective Agency, has been asked to investigate the murder of Cyrus Zorabian, one of the Parsee community's most respected grandees, by his daughter. She is unhappy with the progress of the police.
Chopra finds himself mixing with the wealthy and elite of the city but finds that even here greed and the desire for power is rampant. The traditions held dear by the Parsee community are at risk both from the external progress of modern times and the machinations of those within.
Along with his extraordinary companion, Ganesh, the baby elephant, his trusty assistant, Rangwalla, and his wonderful wife, Poppy, Chopra follows his own honourable course investigating the death of Zorabian.
