Mystery & Suspense • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1966

Sam Dastor captivates as Inspector Ghote of the Bombay Police in this engaging early tale by H.R.F. Keating, English author of over 25 Inspector Ghote books. In this one, Ghote must find out who killed an American philanthropist, who had been rescuing Bombay street children before he was poisoned. The story is awash in heartbreaking, swaggering street children; charming crooks; haughty Westerners; our own modest and occasionally arrogant Ghote; and so many more. The accents and speech patterns that Dastor uses create a multidimensional film on tape, and help the listener understand the social nuances of this complex tale. A mellifluous, intelligent reading left this listener wanting more Ghote and much more Dastor. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
