In the short story The Case of the Perfect Maid, Mr Larkin is a retired Anglo-Indian judge, who lives with his wife in one of the four flats at Old Hall. The judge is said to have a bad temper. He also has demanding habits, such as wanting his "chota hazri"[1] (morning tea) at six in the morning. For this and other reasons, the Larkins had just lost their maid at the beginning of the story.
