Summary

Some crooks have tried to snatch the plump son of a business tycoon, and have accidentally made off with his playmate instead. But they're not changing their plan: a payment is to be delivered to them or a small corpse is to be delivered to Inspector Ghote. But what kind of ransom can a mere tailor's boy demand? And, as something more unpleasant than just a ransom note arrives from the kidnappers, are the police helping to keep the boy in one piece?

A mixed experience

Having listened to all of Tarquin Hall's and Sam Dastor's Vish Puri mysteries, i was hoping to find another such wonderful combination. It was a much more sombre experience, and although Sam Dastor does a fantastic reading again, the bleakness and repeated misery of Inspector Ghotte's hierarchicaly constrained and tortured existence was too much for me in the end...

Well told, but horrible ending.

I have listened to 2 of these. This one was better than the first one, but the ending was absolutely unfair and disturbing. I don't want another one.

The most authentic of this great series

This is the most authentic of a great series of police procedurals bu H. R.F. Keating. Having worked as a prosecutor for over 15 years, I can see this case actually happening. Inspector Ghote is an eminently likable protagonist, his thought processes are believable, and his solutions make sense. A wonderful series.
