This was pretty entertaining, and certainly painted a vivid picture of modern Mumbai, but it wasn't great as a mystery. The book focuses more on Chopra and his wife Poppy than on the mystery, and the mystery is solved pretty abruptly. The baby elephant is naturally the best part, but also entirely implausible and I mostly felt sorry for the poor thing. ( )

A fun, well-written mystery! I look forward to reading the next in the series. ( )

I’ve been doing a lot of heavy reading (and thinking) lately, so this was a much-deserved treat. I was having trouble understanding the audiobook at first . . . until I realized that I had the playback speed set at 1.5 from my previous book. Oops! 1.25 was fine. Anyway, straight-as-an-arrow retired policeman Chopra spectacularly fails at retirement, aided by baby elephant Ganesh. What’s not to like?! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316386820, Paperback)

On the day he retires, Inspector Ashwin Chopra inherits two unexpected mysteries.

The first is the case of a drowned boy, whose suspicious death no one seems to want solved. And the second is a baby elephant.

As his search for clues takes him across the teeming city of Mumbai, from its grand high rises to its sprawling slums and deep into its murky underworld, Chopra begins to suspect that there may be a great deal more to both his last case and his new ward than he thought.

And he soon learns that when the going gets tough, a determined elephant may be exactly what an honest man needs...
