The Perfect Murder

By H.R.F. Keating

Snappy Review

A classic, and infuriating tale as the suspects dissemble and the Inspector never seems to get the answers he is seeking. However Ghote is dogmatic, and unrelenting, and the answers will find him, in the most roundabout of ways!

Synopsis

In the house of Lala Varde, a vast man of even greater influence, an attack has taken place. Varde’s secretary, Mr Perfect, has been struck on his invaluable business head. And try as Inspector Ghote might to remain conscientious and methodical, his investigation is beset on all sides by cunning, disdain and corruption. And then there’s the impossible theft of a single rupee to be dealt with . . .

The Perfect MurderĀ introduced Inspector Ghote: Bombay CID’s most dutiful officer, and one of the greatest, most engaging creations in all detective fiction.%%%In the house of Lala Varde, a vast man of even greater influence, an attack has taken place.
