    I am in love with this series. I am in love with The Chopras and this yummy baby elephant. I love Mumbai (or as I call it "Bombay"). In the latest installment, Mr. Khan has burst out; layering #3 with even more details and making the entire location and characters become even more vivid. I read it with a Bombay map (and I use maps quite a lot when I read ) so I knew just where we were most of the time. My map was dated - thus some things had not yet been built but I now know residential location I am in love with this series. I am in love with The Chopras and this yummy baby elephant. I love Mumbai (or as I call it "Bombay"). In the latest installment, Mr. Khan has burst out; layering #3 with even more details and making the entire location and characters become even more vivid. I read it with a Bombay map (and I use maps quite a lot when I read ) so I knew just where we were most of the time. My map was dated - thus some things had not yet been built but I now know residential locations, localities and destinations.( And I confess, I love the appearance of a map in the front of any book set in a real place; with the glossary, the reader becomes a true participant in the tale). But an updated map is easy to find (Google helps!) and this is super third book establishes The Baby Ganesh Agency to the numerous thriller/detective series that have become popular. Keating started this trend many years ago, but few others have located the action in Mumbai and the window opened by Vaseem Khan on this fabulous city is so good it delights me. The ending was a surprise and I did not see it coming - always the sign of good mystery. I can only hope that Mr. Khan has many more Ganeshas in the wings. I await another adventure with all the cast assembled and I hope others discover this series and love it just as much as I do.

    Another brilliant installment from the wonderful Inspector Chopra & his sidekick elephant, Ganesha. I can't recommend these highly enough for any cosy crime fan.
