An unloved woman is a soft target, anyone can hit her, have her.

It s just another evening at the Tiller s Club.

Near the bar, Capt. Rana, the Young Officer undergoing training at the War College stands among his course mates, consciously avoiding his pregnant, Muslim wife, Heena. Rumour has it she had forced him to marry her because of the baby.

Saryu, village belle turned modern babe, drink in hand, chats up a YO. Her husband, Maj. Vikram Singh, shoots angry glances at her. She isn t bothered; the question is, who will she go home with tonight?

Pam and Gary, the flamboyant Sikh couple, chat merrily with the senior officers, charming as ever. Who d ever guess that they lead the infamous Key Club, an underground swinger couples club.

And in one corner stands the Anglo-Indian wife of Maj. George Chandy, Eva, who finds herself at the heart of a murder mystery when a woman s bleeding body is discovered at the old church under the black cross. The murdered woman s body is covered with cigarette burns. A six-year-old girl s wrist is similarly marked. Another little girl shows signs of severe abuse.

Jacob Hills: an army station that houses the War College where young officers receive training. A world of army officers and genteel conversation, of smart men and graceful women. Set in the 1980s in an India that was at the cusp of tradition and Westernized modernity this is the story of the ugliness that lies beneath the garb ofJacob Hills s beauty and sophistication. An ugliness the Chandys find themselves confronted with. Will they uncover the truth behind the woman s murder? Will their love survive Jacob Hills?
