As an Inquiry begins beneath the first torrents of monsoon rain โ€” will he even want to? Keating 1926-2011 was born at St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex. But still the good inspector dutifully goes, carrying just the hour of his police force and a box of double-sized eggs. After a period of service in the army, which he describes as 'totally undistinguished', he went to Trinity College, Dublin, where he became a scholar in modern languages. He died in London in March 2011 at the age of 84. He was also the crime books reviewer for The Times for fifteen years. Not recommended as anyone's first foray into the Bombay detective fiction world, but there for the Ghote fans.

Put simply, the fictional crime fighter with a reputation for dogged honesty and integrity which Keating has built up over several previous novels is altogether too comfortable with being party to the concealment of a crime, and improbably persists with the concealment after the murderer confesses and kills himself. In the house of Lala Varde, a vast man of even vaster influence, an attack has taken place. He was the crime books reviewer for The Times for fifteen years, as well as serving as the chairman of the Crime Writers Association and the Society of Authors. Keating 1926-2011 was born at St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex. His first novel about Inspector Ghote, The Perfect Murder, won the Gold Dagger of the Crime Writers Association and an Edgar Allen Poe Special Award. It is one of those lesser known gems of Indian Cinema. But the problem for 'Under the Monsoon Cloud' is that Ghote's character up to this point is built around a man of great integrity and cleverness even if of the slow rather than the quick kind.

However, this was the second time that a Merchant Ivory film led me to buy another book written by the author who had originally birthed the Merchant Ivory movie script and left me somewhat disappointed. As it turns out, the rest of the plot is quite a lot more pedestrian, and so four stars seems just a little-little bit generous, but nevertheless the hook still kept me gripped to the end, the writing throughout is fresh and engaging, the characters from main to minor are both interesting and entirely convincing, and there are moral questions beneath the surface akin to those of Crime and Punishment that enga The first quarter of this is a rollicking, gripping read, and I was all set to love it. An accident it may have been, but Ghote saw exactly what happened, and it's his duty to arrest the killer. And try as Inspector Ghote might to remain conscientious and methodical, his investigation is beset on all sides by cunning, disdain and corruption. But while the scenario is complex and engaging as a story, the response from the character of Ghote is unconvincing. No obvious damage to the cover, with the dust jacket if applicable included for hard covers. One crime that couldn't have happened, one that probably hasn't.
