About this ebook

On the day he retires, Inspector Ashwin Chopra inherits two unexpected mysteries.

The first is the case of a drowned boy, whose suspicious death no one seems to want solved. And the second is a baby elephant.

As his search for clues takes him across the teeming city of Mumbai, from its grand high rises to its sprawling slums and deep into its murky underworld, Chopra begins to suspect that there may be a great deal more to both his last case and his new ward than he thought.

And he soon learns that when the going gets tough, a determined elephant may be exactly what an honest man needs. . .

I'm really enjoying the first novel in this series and am already looking forward to novels 2 and 3. This is a clean and wholesome novel, with a mature protagonist that older readers will relate to, set in an exotic place, and for food lovers: lots of cuisine descriptions. You'll love it, too.

Third-party review
Indian style cozy with a baby elephant sidekicking the retired inspector. A fun, fanciful read.
Third-party review
Wildly improbable behavior and coincidence aren't my favorite elements in a detective novel, and that's mostly what's on offer here. Mostly harmless.

About the author

Vaseem Khan first saw an elephant lumbering down the middle of the road in 1997 when he arrived in India to work as a consultant. It was the most unusual thing he'd ever encountered and served as the inspiration behind his series of crime novels.

He returned to the UK in 2006 and now works at University College London for the Department of Security and Crime Science where he is astonished daily by the way modern science is being employed to tackle crime.
