Keating ✓ 4 Read E Minister of Police Affairs and the ArtsThe Perfect Murder introduces Inspector Ghote Bombay CID's most dogged dutiful officer and one of the greatest most engaging creations in all detective fictio As a readable detective story this is enjoyable and uite engaging Alexander McCall Smith provides the enthusiastic introduction and one can see why because there is than a faint echo of Ghote in Mma Ramotswe They are both innocent but determined and resilient both beacons of decency in a less than decent world and both rely heavily on a slightly obscure written authority for their methodology with Mma Ramotswe s relationship with Clovis Andersen s Principles of Private Detection bearing a striking resemblance to Ghote s with Gross s Criminal Investigation The plot here is also concerned with puzzling but relatively minor crimes which all makes for an amiable read with Bombay and its characters colourfully drawnIt is this last which made me slightly uneasy about the book Keating is an Englishman who in 1964 when this book was published had never been to India I am sorry of this seems like Political Correctness Gone Mad but for him then to paint poisonous portraits of some Indians and somewhat patronising comic ones of others did worry me Even if as McCall Smith says by way of exoneration such characters exist it seems to me that it is one thing for a knowledgeable author with experience of India even if non Indian to describe them but another for a mid 1960s white Englishman to imagine them without any first hand knowledgeSoit s an amiable well written and engaging book My reservations are a personal response to wider issues around the book rather than to the book itself and I have given it four stars because I think that s what the text itself deserves If you don t share my reservations and like fairly gentle detective fiction I can recommend it

Keating ✓ 4 Read What terrible luck to be investigating the perfect murder at the beginning of his career with the Bombay Police thinks Inspector Ghote First he must deal with the influential tycoon Lala Verde his in Spoiler Alert There is NO murder in The Perfect Murder Sorry about that But for all of you who might pick this up thinking that this is one of those impossible crimes or that your murder mystery actually has a murder in it I thought you ought to know I also think you ought to know that this is in my opinion far from the perfect anything story crime novel etc This is my second outing with Keating writing under his own name and I have to say that I am beginning to think that he just isn t for meButback to the story Why you might ask is it called The Perfect Murder if there s no murder and what we do have going on isn t perfect Glad you asked It seems that the secretary of Lala Varde a prosperous businessman has been bashed over the head with a candlestick Lala Varde reported it to the police as a murder because by his logic someone was trying to murder his secretary so by golly it s murder Even if it didn t succeed The name caught on with the newspapers and such and nobody seems to care that the man really didn t die The ever conscientious Inspector Ghote is assigned to the case and is immediately faced with lies disdain and corruptionSoI ll just fess up now and tell you that I did not read every word of this Not even as much as every other word Only enough that I decided that I could legitimately count it for a few challenges and I m shoving this thing off my Mount TBR and sending it back to the library s used book shop where it came from I skimmed to the end just so I could know what really happened Kate over at crossexamingingcrime says that Keating is good at establishing an interesting setting in a culture which readers can identify with but also find difference in I m afraid I didn t find this to be the case I never did settle into the setting that Keating gave us and I certainly didn t warm to the methods of Ghote and the culture surrounding him as represented And don t even get me started on Lala Varde and his never ending need to make silly rhymes about everything when talking No rating because I didn t really read closely enough to hand one out Others have handed out four and five starsso your mileage may varyI have also read a couple of his historical mysteries written under the name Evelyn Hervey I enjoyed those handing out three starsFirst posted on my blog My Reader s Block
