Inspector Ghote, His Life and Crimes
by H. R. F. Keating
The best of the shorter adventures of Inspector Ghote, ‘one of the great creations of detective fiction’ (Alexander McCall Smith), are brought together in this page-turning collection of short stories – with a brand-new introduction by bestselling author Vaseem Khan.
Inspector Ganesh Ghote of the Bombay CID stands alongside Hercule Poirot and Sherlock Holmes as one of the best-loved of fictional detectives. Mild mannered, often hamstrung by his refusal to accept bribes or force false confessions, but unparalleled in his determination to catch his killer, Ghote has delighted readers since his first appearance in print in 1967.
This collection of short stories brings together some of the best of Ghote’s shorter adventures. From ‘The All-Bat Hat’ to ‘Murder Mustn’t At All Advertise, Isn’t It?’, these stories celebrate Ghote and his painstaking investigative powers. Plus, an introduction by H. R. F. Keating himself gives a fascinating insight into the creation of the good detective, and how his life as a policewalla changed and evolved over the years to reflect real-life police work in the contemporary Bombay of the past.
