Summary

In the enchanting new Baby Ganesh Agency novel, Inspector Chopra and his elephant sidekick go undercover to investigate a murder at Mumbai's grandest hotel. 

For a century the iconic Grand Raj Palace Hotel has welcomed the world's elite. From film stars to foreign dignitaries, anyone who is anyone stays at the Grand Raj. The last thing the venerable old hotel needs is a murder.... 

When American billionaire Hollis Burbank is found dead - the day after buying India's most expensive painting - the authorities are keen to label it a suicide. But the man in charge of the investigation is not so sure. Chopra is called in - and discovers a hotel full of people with a reason to want Burbank dead. 

Accompanied by his sidekick, baby elephant Ganesha, Chopra navigates his way through the palatial building, a journey that leads him steadily to a killer and into the heart of darkness....

Great listen

This book has possibly the best storyline in the series. Although I preferred the narrator of the first two of the four books, the performance of this final novel was more fluid than the previous (3rd) book and showed a definite improvement. A fun listen.

Wonderful narration

I love these books! The stories are always interesting and well written (and fun) but I also wanted to commend the narration which is excellent. Full of light and shade without getting overly melodramatic.A joy to listen to.

spoilt by the narration

I LOVE these books. Await eagerly each year for the next episode in Baby Ganesh career. This one is excellent, let down by the narration. The first 2 were fine, the voice engaging. But this and "Bollywood Star" were drawn out by the slow delivery. Won't stop me from buying anything Vaseem Khan writes but I wish you would revert to the original narrator.
