Series: Inspector Ghote
Part: 5

Summary (From the publisher):

Bombay is suddenly hit by a series of rather vicious practical jokes.

One by one, valuable flamingoes at Bombay Zoo are killed.

The racehorse fancied to win the Bombay Derby is replaced in its stable by a donkey.

When joke follows joke, Inspector Ghote is called in.

But even fate develops a sense of humour. He is saddled with the most incompetent assistant that a police college ever produced. Sergent Desai.

The the fun stops. Someone gets killed.

The more questions Ghote asks, the less he knows. And, because Ghote is endearingly human, and not a celluloid super-cop, he starts to make mistakes.

But he carries on digging.

What he turned up surprised him as much as it'll surprise you.
