The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra by Vaseem Khan

The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra by Vaseem Khan is a lot of fun — charming and entertaining!

The story is set in contemporary Mumbai. Our hero, Inspector Ashwin Chopra, has been forced to take an early retirement, due to a dodgy’ticker’. But Chopra cannot ignore the case of a drowned boy, which no-one seems interested in solving. And at the same time, he receives a most unexpected gift from a favourite uncle: a baby elephant.

I loved how this novel transported me to the amazing world of Mumbai, with all its heaving humanity, extreme weather and sprawling slums. However, there is also enormous generosity to be found in this extraordinary city, if you know where to look.

If you love the charm and whimsy of The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, then you will also fall in love with The Baby Ganesh Agency Investigations.
