The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra by Vaseem Khan

A Gentle, and Charming,  Detective Story     

My rating:  4 out of 5     

Inspector Chopra’s retirement day has arrived.  However the discovery of a body and the unexpecThe Unexpected Inheritanceted delivery of a baby elephant to his apartment mean that his transition into quiet retirement does not go quite as his wife would have liked.

Wonderful descriptions of life in Mumbai, including culture, monsoon problems, corruption and the everyday trials of having a tyrannical apartment Managing Committee President.

This is the first Inspector Chopra book I have read.  I found the characters very engaging (including the elephant), and the storyline – though lightweight – strangely compelling.  A book for when you want an easy read, or to get an idea of Mumbai before visiting.  Suitable for all the family.
