Summary :

Dr. Farrokh Daruwalla divides his time between the city of his birth, Bombay, India, and his adopted home, Toronto, Canada, but never feels at home at either. Daruwalla is a doctor with a penchant for collecting the blood of dwarves, a frequent circus-goer and the writer of the most popular series of Bollywood movies ever. But now the star of the movies, the enigmatic Inspector Dhar, attracts the attentions of a dangerous and twisted admirer who isn't afraid to spill a little blood.

Part part murdery mystery, part comedy, filled with clashing egos and cultures, A Son of the Circus is all Irving.
