(From the publisher):
When Inspector Ghote is summoned to an interview with the Director General of Police and sent on a mission into the Indian countryside, it is to tackle his most tricky case to date - the Tick Tock Murder.
Inspector Ghote is understandably fraught. A man has been battered to death in a Bombay watchmaker's shop, but with suspects and motives aplenty - and a Director General apparently more concerned with punctuality than police work - Ghote finds the solution tantalisingly out of reach... And with only precious hours to go before he must deliver his culprit, dead on time.
