Summary

A young man is found dead in the toilet of Matunga Road railway station, his stomach ripped open. Retired journalist Peter D’Souza joins the investigation with his friend, Inspector Jende, and discovers a world of secret desire, blackmail and unspoken love—a world that he barely knew existed, and one that he fears his son may be a part of. Driven as much by fear and empathy as by curiosity about men who seek men, Peter tries to track down the killer, with some help from the flamboyant Leslie Siqueira, ‘the Queen of the Queen of the Suburbs’.

But time seems to be running out.

Jerry Pinto’s new novel—set in Mumbai, the city he writes about like no other—is a gripping murder mystery. It is also a story of family and friendship, and a compelling, often poignant exploration of loneliness, greed and unlikely solidarities in the great metropolis.
