Description

In the gripping new Baby Ganesh Agency novel, Inspector Chopra and his elephant sidekick investigate the death of one of Mumbai's wealthiest citizens, a murder with ramifications for its poorest.

The Parsees are among the oldest, most secretive and most influential communities in the city: respected, envied and sometimes feared.

When prominent industrialist Cyrus Zorabian is murdered on holy ground, his body dumped inside a Tower of Silence - where the Parsee dead are consumed by vultures - the police dismiss it as a random killing. But his daughter is unconvinced.

Chopra, uneasy at entering this world of power and privilege, is soon plagued by doubts about the case.

But murder is murder. And in Mumbai, wealth and corruption go in hand in hand, inextricably linking the lives of both high and low....

Best Ever

The narrator is absolutely the BOMB! He does an amazing job distinguishing between the different characters. He reads dramatically, when Ganesh touches something with his trunk you can feel it. The author excelled in this story with amazing characters, catheter man, Mr. Poop, corpse bearers, and the vultures. One of my favorite scenes was when Chopra wakes up his partner who had fallen asleep on his desk. You just have to read/listen to it . . ,chicken bones flying. I wish they would make this a tv series. Great mystery! Great characters!

Loved it. It is a page-turner and features a vivid description of contemporary India.

Great series. Just okay book.

My husband and I greatly enjoyed the first two books in the Baby Ganesh series, so were delighted when a new installment became available. Unfortunately, there are only glimpses of what was best about the other books. Chopra’s wife Poppy is irrepressible as ever, on a new campaign to change Mumbai’s centuries old bathroom habits. The usual cast of characters all make an appearance. Sadly, the baby elephant does not feature as prominently as he once did and the comic relief is barely enough to balance the macabre nature of the story. Definitely the weakest storyline of all the books. The performance was also oddly stilted with strange long pauses in the middle of sentences as though the reader kept losing his place.

Laughed aloud

I very much enjoyed this book, finding myself laughing aloud at some of the visual images, especially the “poo to loo!” I also loved learning about cultures I knew little to nothing about.
