Mystery & Suspense • 8.3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1971

One of Britain's finest crime fiction authors, Keating has written more than twenty Inspector Ghote mysteries. Here, Ghote is sent to Calcutta to escort a master criminal back to Bombay. He takes the train, hoping to make the journey into a mini-vacation. Fate conspires, however, and an odd assortment of travelers turns the trip into something unexpected. Sam Dastor is masterful. As the anxious Ghote, he diligently uncovers the truth. Dastor's believable accents, from Bengali to Madrasi to American, act as instant photographs of each mysterious character. As the plot picks up steam, Dastor brings frustration, humor, and thrills to this trip across India and back. Combine the incisive wit of H.R.F. Keating and a bravura performance by Sam Dastor, and you have a memorable listening experience. S.J.H.
