La description:

St. Louis, Missouri, is a quietly dying river city until it hires a new police chief: a charismatic young woman from Bombay, India, named S. Jammu. No sooner has Jammu been installed, though, than the city's leading citizens become embroiled in an all-pervasive political conspiracy. A classic of contemporary fiction, The Twenty-Seventh City shows us an ordinary metropolis turned inside out, and the American Dream unraveling into terror and dark comedy. St. Louis is a fading river town whose only current claim to national attention is that it has chosen a woman from Bombay, India--a young, charismatic emigre named S. Jammu--to be its new police chief. No sooner has Jammu been installed, however, than the city becomes embroiled in a bizarre political conspiracy.
