Publisher's summary

A new novella in the charming Baby Ganesh Agency series.

In a symbolic journey of reconciliation, the Monsoon Express is travelling between hostile neighbours India and Pakistan. The passenger list includes politicians, celebrities, former Mumbai policeman Inspector Chopra and his baby elephant ward, Ganesha.

Then a senior diplomat is found murdered in his cabin. Accusations fly, tensions rise and an international incident seems certain. But is the murder political - or personal?

Tasked to investigate, Chopra has just hours before the train reaches its destination and the news goes public. He must unmask the killer quickly if he's to stop the last journey of the Monsoon Express going entirely off the rails....

Best one yet

In all the Inspector Chopra books, I’ve enjoyed getting to know him, his wife and the usual characters. Even better, in the context of a cozy mystery I am introduced to Mumbai and Indian culture.

In this one, the Inspector has grown into his role as a private investigator with integrity & a network of resources. I learned about the tensions between India & Pakistan and their historical roots. It’s a difficult situation & he handles it masterfully and with compassion.

People have compared it to the First Lady Detective Agency series (Alexander McCall Smith), also set in another culture. It also reminds me of the Jim Chee series (Tony and Ann Hillerman).

Delightful!

Another delightful offering from Vaseem Khan. For those who have already fallen for Detective Chopra and his baby elephant companion, this book brings more joy. For new listeners, I recommend starting at the beginning of the series.

Awesome novella

This is a wonderful police as Chopra investigates the death of the leader of the Indian delegation on a train to Pakistan. Baby Ganesh, his sidekick, takes a back seat for most of the story but shines when he does make an entrance. A quick and wonderful read. The narrator was excellent.
