Summary

Inspector Ghote, 'one of the great creations of detective fiction' (Alexander McCall Smith), is plunged into the dazzling, chaotic world of Bollywood movies when the world's most famous screen villain is murdered in this classic mystery - with a brand-new introduction by bestselling author Vaseem Khan.

India's most famous screen villain, Dhartiraj, lies dead on a Bollywood film set, his neck snapped by a falling stage light. There's no doubt it's murder, and Inspector Ghote of the Bombay CID, who's thrilled to be personally assigned such a high-profile case, quickly discovers that there's no shortage of suspects. 
 
The fading star who Dhartiraj toppled from his place; the superstar who stole Dhartiraj's wife, and whose mistress Dhartiraj stole in revenge; and Dhartiraj's secret-dealing stand-in - Ghote finds he could easily make a case for each of them wanting the great Dhartiraj off the boards and into permanent retirement.
 
But his investigations are hindered not just by the film studio's intimidating owner, who is determined that nothing will stand in the way of his latest film's financial success, but by Ghote himself. For the good detective, caught up in visions of his own glittering success, finds himself desperate to solve the case in record time.

    For a respectable governess like Harriet Unwin, her first few weeks in the shabby, inhospitable home of the Partingtons were as unhappy as any she could remember.

    But worse was to come for Harriet. Her chance discovery of the old man's cherished secret was, she felt sure, the cause of the attack that finally stilled his heart. The doctor, however, thought otherwise. It was neither illness nor old age that killed poor Mr Partington. It was poison...

The peaceful order of puppet-maker Polly Deacon’s back-to-nature rural life is violently interrupted when she finds her best friend Francy’s abusive husband lying dead in the dump with a hole in his chest. What’s worse, Francy can’t remember what happened the night of the murder. The cops soon get involved…and in more ways than one, as Polly finds herself falling for hunky officer Mark Becker.

The situation comes to a head as the outspoken and resourceful Polly begins receiving threats to her life. As she searches for answers, Polly discovers that the puzzle often points inward and she is forced to question her values and her friendships. But where there is death, there is also grief and passion, and passion in Cedar Falls is never simple, and sometimes, as Polly discovers, it can also be deadly.
