On a sultry March evening, in the great hive-city of Mubai, Inspector Ashwin Chopra (Retd) was once again discovering the futility of reasoned discourse with his fellow countrymen...

Vaseem Khan’s vibrant Indian series continues with The Strange Disappearance of a Bollywood Star. Chopra has found his way into all of our hearts, together with his sidekick mini elephant and his family of Poppy and Irfan. This is a mystery series, with a hard edge of realism.

I can honestly say that I struggle with 364 days of the year when I do not have a new Vaseem Khan book to read. In his third foray into fiction, I have read it, as usual, in one day. The story is riveting, the narrative is fluid, the action is suspenseful and I love the pleasure I get when I read...

This novel is the third in the Chopra and baby Ganesha series. It is set in modern-day Mumbai and it is easily one of my favourite series. I read the second novel whilst in hospital with severe DVT. I was bedbound and in agony, yet when I opened the book I was able to completely escape. This seri...

Great fun (with moments of danger, social conscious and key characters with hearts of gold). As over the top as a Bollywood movie ... it even includes some dance sequences.
