An American visitor to India is killed on the road from Bombay to Poona. Called in to investigate the murder, Inspector Ghote soon makes the acquaintance of the victim's brother, Professor Gregory Strongbow. But the professor is both stubborn and evasive, refusing to tell Ghote what he knows about the events leading up to Hector's death. Soon Ghote finds his own life in danger, as he is faced with a conspiracy that reaches to the very highest levels of Indian politics...
This is the third book in the hugely popular Inspector Ghote series from H.R.F. Keating.

Yes, he's a good narrator. This is not one of my favourites, but it's OK.
No, it's very long. It was good to listen to it over a couple of days while doing housework though.
It would help if someone had listened through to this before publishing it. There is at least one place where the narrator stutters, stops, tuts and repeats himself. I suppose it lent a realistic air to the narration - as though it were really being read to you by someone in the room - but a conscientious editor would have noticed and sorted it out.
"A long-time fan of Inspector Ghote"
I couldn't say. I never "read" books; I listen only.
Not exactly, but I didn't feel like quitting either.
I love Sam's narration. I even searched for him and have listened to other Authors, that he narrates. He is a perfect example of how a Narrator brings a book to life. Sam's ability to switch smoothly between India accents and English, is excellent! It is the same with Lissette Lecat. Her narration of the "Number 1 Lady's Detective Agency" series, and her familiarity with the Botswana accent, is amazing. If you are not listening to Audio, you are missing out! :))
No... this is one of Keating's last, and, although still a very good book, it isn't his best.
I highly recommend all of the Ghote books, on Audio!!!!!
