Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0804112592, Mass Market Paperback)

A corpse has been discovered in a lake in Film City, the Hollywood of India, where film stars always guarantee fresh material for scandal. The victim has been so badly mutiliated that it is impossible to identify the body as male or female, let alone give it a name. An outsider in his own land, with a British father and a feminist mother, George Sansi, who may be the only honest policeman in Bombay, is given the case. As he painstakingly follows up every clue, a shocking portrait of evil emerges. And Sansi is pulled into a political imbroglio from which his career may never recover . . . if he lives so long.

This was done by someone who enjoys killing ... "I've seen crimes of passion, I've seen dismemberment, decapitation and sexual mutilation before. But not like this. Not with this kind of ... wilful savagery ..." The body of a young actor is pulled out of a lake near Bombay's Film City. Before dying he had been hideously mutilated. Beyond recognition. Beyond belief. When another mutilated corpse is found, Inspector George Sansi must face the unspeakable truth. A psychopath who kills at random ... and for pleasure. The only thing Sansi is certain of is that the killer is a white man. And that he will kill again. Racing desperately against time, Sansi finds a clue in the past and uncovers a trail of gruesome murders that began over half a century before - a trail still warm with the blood of countless victims. But how could a murderer return from the past to begin killing all over again?… (more)
