Their plans are ruined, however, since Sir Rustom Engineer requires Ghote to investigate the suicide of his friend's wife.

Worried about his wife's imminent delivery, Ghote nevertheless travels to the home of Mr. Dawkins, where he is unconvinced by the story of Iris Dawkins' death. Especially when he recognises the officer in charge, Darrani, well known for his close-mindedness.

Interestingly developed

A bit dated, HRF's Inspector White is an interesting, rather irritating character. Better listened to than read because of the Anglo- Indian language.
