Summary Note Shuklaji Street, in Old Bombay. In Rashid's opium room the air is thick with voices and ghosts: Hindu, Muslim, Christan. A young woman holds a long stemmed pipe over a flame, her hair falling accross her eyes. Men sprawl and mutter in the gloom. Here, they say you introduce only your worst enemy to opium. There is an underworld whisper of a new terror: the Pather Maar, the stone killer , whose victims are the nameless, invisible poor. In the broken city, there are too many to count.
