Synopsis

It often takes a major event to make an otherwise placid individual disrupt the normal running of life, but, like Mauritius itself, a country in the track of storm weather, the effects of a cyclone, or in Dev's case, an injustice, although potentially destructive, can lead to a change for the better. Dev, the owner of a new shop - The Shop - a successful and well-read man, harbours deep feelings about a wrong that has occurred in the past. With news of a cyclone heading his way he hatches an audacious plan to take revenge, or, more precisely, to teach a lesson to those responsible. In what may be described as a moral story, Ramesh Jeewoolall spins a tale of a good man driven to extreme measures. The Passing Away of a Gentleman is an excellent read for those who enjoy intelligent crime.

The author started writing when he had to give up politics as a choice in life and legal practice as an intellectual exercise due to a stroke which has left him paralysed on the right side of his body. This book is his second publication. The author now thinks that maybe it would have been better to have become a writer than to have been a politician or a lawyer.
