Quite good, and introduces a detective story protagonist who is not the usual run-of-the-mill (at least from my perspective). I can't decide if the ending of this short story rushed the otherwise measured pacing, and if it was enough to matter if so. For example, was the rude guy killed at the end, with barely a sentence to acknowledge it, or just punched out? It would definitely change one's perception of Kabir and his worldview to know. Was it left deliberately ambiguous?
In any case, I plan to add writer Arun Krishnan to my list of newly discovered authors to read more by.
