Translated from the French by Eileen Ellenbogen. "The French Vise-Consul at Lahore has been suspended following a series of strange incidents considered by his diplomatic superiors as both shocking and reprehensible. In Calcutta he waits for news of his next posting. And in Calcutta at all gossip and conjecturing revolve around the facts and the reasons. Who Is the Vice-Consul? What has he been before Lahore? Why had he stood on his balcony, firing in the direction of the Shalimar Gardens where the letters and stray dogs of Lahore congregated? And why did he call down death on the town and its inhabitants?" -- From the rear panel blurb. Minor rubbing to the backstrip edges and light age toning of the internal text.
