Yet here he was, six months after enduring the Bhopal gas disaster, inspecting the bludgeoned body of Anna Peters, the elderly woman he knew from the poetry Club. Sub-Inspector Muthu Satyamurty is no help for Ravi's troubles. The blunt-talking SI sees Ravi as a nosy northerner, but the two make an unlikely team. Muthu arrests Anna's former student, Jiffy Lyall, for her murder when a book gifted to him is found in her home. Days later, retiree Colonel Mukherjee is found shot dead. Then a third body turns up. What are the links between Jiffy's book and the murders? And how does the discovery of an ancient skull fit in? One thing's clear: the Lyall family plot of land is tied to the mystery."
