Harry Keating's Inspector Ghote novels, set in Bombay, India, present a unique challenge to a narrator: to read Indian dialect with respect and accuracy. Narrator Sam Dastor, a Shakespearean actor whose audiobook credits include works by Kipling, Forster, and Naipaul, meets the challenge in this police adventure. After the killing of valuable flamingos at the Bombay Zoo and the substitution of a prize race horse with a donkey, Inspector Ghote and his hapless sergeant are called on to stop the heartless practical joker--until murder turns up a full house. The plot of this mystery is good, but plays second fiddle to Keating's characterizations and Dastor's expert reading. S.E.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
