Overview


Inspector Ganesh Ghote comes to London!
The Indian police inspector (pronounced Go-tay) is sent to attend an international conference on drug smuggling; and in cold, drizzling London he is faced with his first case outside India.
It is a very odd case. The girl, Ranee, niece of relatives of Ghote who live in London, has vanished—seduced, kidnapped, murdered, so her relatives allege, by the notorious pop singer Johnny Bull. Ghote is hounded by the relatives into spending his few leisure hours from the conference in trying to find Ranee—known for her brilliance as The Peacock.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
"[Inspector Ghote] is sent to England to deliver a paper at a conference on drug smuggling [and] is met at the London airport by a ...relative with a missing niece. Ghote tries to placate his relatives by finding the girl, known as Peacock... in the end, he weaves the threads of a succession of minor failures into the fabric of a double triumph."
