It is Inspector Ghote's bad luck to be landed with the case of the perfect murder at the start of his career with the Bombay Police. As if it were not enough to have to contend with the cunning and important tycoon Lala Varde, Ghote finds himself investigating a mysterious theft of one rupee from the desk of yet another Very Important Person, the Minister of Police Affairs and the Arts. "If people would only behave in a simple, reasonable, logical way," sighs the Inspector, as he struggles through the quagmires of incompetence and corruption to solve these curious crimes.
The Perfect Murder won an Edgar Special Award from the Mystery Writers of America as well as the Crime Writers Association Golden Dagger Award.
"Author H.R.F. Keating has created several very clever, entertaining, and unique detectives....The main character, Lala Varde, speaks in rhyme, which Davidson portrays splendidly in an Indian accent....This audio presentation is an enhancement of the written work."-AudioFile
