Publisher's Summary

The enchanting new Baby Ganesh Agency novel sees Inspector Chopra and his elephant sidekick investigating the dark side of Bollywood.
Mumbai thrives on extravagant spectacles and larger-than-life characters. But even in the city of dreams, there is no guarantee of a happy ending.
Rising star and incorrigible playboy Vikram Verma has disappeared, leaving his latest film in jeopardy. Hired by Verma's formidable mother to find him, Inspector Chopra and his sidekick, baby elephant Ganesha, embark on a journey deep into the world's most flamboyant movie industry. As they uncover feuding stars, failed investments and death threats, it seems that many people have a motive for wanting Verma out of the picture. And yet, as Chopra has long suspected, in Bollywood the truth is often stranger than fiction....


Audible Editor Reviews

"Chopra, diligent, incorruptible and not entirely at ease with shiny new India, is a delight, as is his redoubtable wife, Poppy - and Ganesha the elephant, once he has cheered up a bit, proves a very useful ally indeed. Utterly charming." ( Guardian)
"Enchanting." ( Woman & Home)
"A sparkling debut with a zippy plot and an endearing set of characters." ( The Lady)
"A cast of intriguing characters that it will be a joy to see develop. But the greatest strength is the setting in the teeming city of Mumbai, from which the colour and atmosphere flows out of every page in this enjoyable, whimsical tale." ( Daily Express)
"A quirky murder mystery...full of colourful characters and insightful details about human motivation." ( Irish Examiner)

Shame they've swapped narrators

I loved the first 2 books especially the narration. No disrespect to this narrator but the voices were so superb on the first books that this a massive disappointment. Storyline fantastic but it really dragged on the way it was read. Hope they swap back or I'll give future books a miss

Brilliant series with great character development

I've loved this series from the beginning with sympathetic characters and a few twists and turns. It's a shame they couldn't have got the previous narrator but this one does a good enough job. Descriptions of India are warm and evocative a great cosy detective story.
