Enjoyed the book and narrator

Sam Dastor, narrator, does a very good job of bringing the characters to life in this classic mystery. Inspector Ghote novels are similar in pace and tone to classic British mysteries (Christie, Marsh) but Inspector Ghote is from Bombay and has a unique personality and different methods. The point of view is third person limited, where we know Ghote's feelings, including his insecurities, and thoughts, but not those of the other characters, so the reader feels he knows Ghote more personally. In this novel he makes his first trip to London, so there is the added pleasure of seeing him work in a new environment. Recommended!

OK

Story was just OK, somewhat hard to follow and I didn't particularly enjoy the Indian accent - even though it was well done.
