Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. From the cover: “Inspector Ganesh Ghote is involved in murder again, but this time he’s on the wrong side of the law. All had been going well at the sleepy hill station of Vigatpore, Ghote’s temporary command, but the events of one terrible night — a night he can’t forget — now threaten to ruin his life. It was quite without warning that his long-time hero, “Tiger” Kelkar, had descended on the station to make a formal inspection. Suddenly, to his horror, Ghote found himself unwittingly caught up in trying to cover up an accident — an accident which became a murder. Now, Ghote is in the extraordinary position of being the accused in an inquiry set up to elicit the truth about the fateful turn of events that night. Torn between loyalty to a superior officer and loyalty to the forces of law and order he represents, Ghote must face the most difficult test of his career.”
