The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra was just the start of this delightful series.

The fourth book in the series, Murder at the Grand Raj Palace, will see Inspector Chopra and Ganesha attempting to solve the murder of a wealthy American art collector staying at the most famous hotel in Asia, the century old Taj Palace Hotel in Mumbai. This book is due to be published in 2018. Here’s the blurb …

For a century the iconic Grand Raj Palace Hotel has welcomed the world’s elite. From film stars to foreign dignitaries, anyone who is anyone stays at the Grand Raj.
The last thing the venerable old hotel needs is a murder…
When American billionaire Hollis Burbank is found dead – the day after buying India’s most expensive painting – the authorities are keen to label it a suicide. But the man in charge of the investigation is not so sure. Chopra is called in – and discovers a hotel full of people with a reason to want Burbank dead.
Accompanied by his sidekick, baby elephant Ganesha, Chopra navigates his way through the palatial building, a journey that leads him steadily to a killer, and into the heart of darkness . . .

A Quickreads novella in the series will be published in 2018, provisionally entitled Inspector Chopra and the Million Dollar Motor Car. Chopra and Ganesha are on the trail of a consummate car thief, one who has managed to steal the most expensive car in the country from a locked showroom.
