Author H.R.F. Keating has created several very clever, entertaining and unique detectives. In The Perfect Murder, Inspector Ghote’s at the helm in Bombay. The main character, Lala Varde, speaks in rhyme, which Davidson portrays splendidly in an Indian accent. Varde’s reaction to the victim who is foolish enough to get himself murdered in Varde’s home makes for good comic relief. Davidson excels and presents female voices in an entirely new and believable style. The book has multiple characters, yet Davidson renders each of them distinct. This audio presentations is an enhancement of the written work, which can bog down. S.G.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 96]
