A new Lalli mystery. Though she-s retired from the police, Lalli-s life continues to unravel through the crimes she investigates. The second title in the detective series that has taken the Indian subcontinent by storm is a Carrollian fantasy, which reveals that life in respectable Utkrusha, a multi-storeyed apartment building in suburban Mumbai, has very dark undercurrents. It-s a Carrollian summer at Utkrusha. Lalli-s flat on the second floor is no longer the haven it used to be for her niece. The staid lives of their neighbours aren-t exactly what they seem, and she-s so caught up in the dizzy whirl of events that it-s some time before she sees the fantastic pattern in their random spill. It all begins with the Adventure of the Banker-s Clerk. That is scarcely explained when they-re startled by the curious behaviour of the sister-s husband-s niece. A brief distraction is provided by a Bear Without its Head. And then the new resident meets a Rattlesnake that Questions Him in Greek. And the estranged husband gets a Letter from his Wife. After an Excursion on a Damp Night, Mr Rao encounters a most peculiar Vegetable Pill. All of which leads Lalli to consider the argument of a Bar of Mottled Soap. But it is not till the baffling incident of the Gardener-s Song that Lalli reads the Double Rule of Three.
