24 Patwardhan Cross. The solitary bone that surfaces in the garden there doesnt mean much to police surgeon Dr Q or Inspector Savio. But Lalli, who collects curiosities, finds it curious. Things get curiouser when a dying gigolo whispers the address in terror, and curiouser still when a mummified finger with a chic manicure turns up in the same garden.

Lalli might have ignored these curiosities, had there not been a child at the heart of the matter

As she investigates what makes this garden grow, Lalli uncovers a gruesome tale.



Author Bio: Kalpana Swaminathan lives in Mumbai, a few streets away from her detective. This is her fifth Lalli novel; the two previous novels published by Penguin are The Monochrome Madonna and I Never Knew It Was You. Her earlier books include Bougainvillea House and Ambrosia for Afters. Venus Crossing, a collection of short stories, won the Vodafone Crossword Fiction Award in 2009.

Kalpana also writes with Ishrat Syed as Kalpish Ratna. Their most recent novel is The Quarantine Papers.
