About the Author:

H.R.F. Keating has written numerous novels but he is perhaps most famous for the Inspector Ghote series set in India. He was the crime books reviewer for The Times for fifteen years, has served as Chairman of the CWA and the Society of Authors, and in 1987 was elected President of the Detection Club. He lives in London.

From AudioFile:

Bombay's Inspector Ghote is sent to London for an international conference on drug smuggling. But he is immediately waylaid by distant relatives whose niece, Peacock, is missing. Wandering the slums of London in the cold drizzle, Ghote discovers flaws in his beloved and revered England, everything from racism to the tepid, bland food. Sam Dastor's theatrical achievements are revealed in the brilliance of his interpretations of everyone from the dreadful relatives to the dastardly London criminal elements. A wonderful moment occurs when Dastor's Ghote submerges his own Bombay accent to try for a posh English one. By the time Ghote finds the missing Peacock, the listener, as well as the inspector, is ready to return to the familiar heat and chaos of India. This is a splendid series, and this particular mystery, despite not being located in India, is a fine addition. B.H.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
