Not just the peacock

 Many years ago I read a detective story about an Indian Inspector who becomes involved in the hunt for a missing person whilst on a visit to England. I wondered if there were any more stories about him so I went looking. If I read one Inspector Ghote book every month it would take me two whole years to read them.

The author is H R F Keating who has written many other crime books, several of them about detective Harriet  Martens. That name seems familiar. I suspect there may have been a TV or radio series at some time. Can anyone enlighten me?

H.R.F. Keating writes about Inspector Ganesh Ghote :

    Breaking and Entering is a film recently released, with Jude Law etc…. but not sure if it’s the same. Sounds like a title which has been used many and oft times…

    Hiya Ruth – just to say, hope you don’t mind but I have reciprocated on the picture front. Did an entry on the blogs I visit, and wanted to include a few pics, hope you don’t mind me borrowing! Credited, of course.
