Inspector Chopra, a principled police officer, retires and inherits an elephant.
Then a boy turns up drowned in suspicious circumstances, but no one seems to want to investigate. Despite being in retirement, Ashwin Chopra takes up the case with the help of his new sidekick, the elephant.
Set in Mubai, the sights, sounds and smells of India permeate the pages as they try to solve this case. The elephant is as determined as his new master, and they leave no stone unturned.
A delightful story of a man of integrity in a corrupt world. If you enjoyed The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry or The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy, by Rachel Joyce, which we have featured previously, try this one.
