(From the publisher):
All Bombay is buzzing with news of the murder of Anil Ajmani. It is certainly a baffling case, for the millionaire was found stabbed to death in his heavily guarded and tightly secure mansion. Every inspector in the Crime Branch hopes to be the one to nail the killer. And that includes Inspector Ganesh Ghote. Unfortunately, he is the only officer not
assigned to the case.
Instead he has been given the less glorious task of tracking down the cat burglar, nicknamed Yeshwant, who has been scaling apartment blocks in the dead of night to steal valuable pieces of jewellery.
Aided - or perhaps hampered - by his old friend Axel Svensson, seeking Indian warmth from his troubles in winter-cold Sweden, Ghote fights to uncover Yeshwant's true identity.
And in doing so unexpectedly finds that he may be the one to solve the murder of Anil Ajmani after all...
