      Keating, H. R. F. INSPECTOR GHOTE DRAWS A LINE. (1979). ****. I am a huge fan of the Bombay Inspector Ghote novels from Dr. Keating. Although this novel is not one of his best, it still shows the remarkable insight the main character has into the human condition, and his incredible ability to read the human mind and soul to solve the crimes which are presented to us. In this case, Inspector Ghote is ordered to a remote part of the Bombay suburbs to help determine who is sending threatening notes [...]

      I was in the mood for something light and, well, fluffy. Inspector Ghote filled the bill. I don't often read British mysteries, but I thought I'd try this one. It takes place in India, and Insp Ghote is sent from Bombay, his home base, to the hinterlands to stop a murder from happening. The about-to-be-victim is not interested in helping, until it becomes painfully obvious the soon-to-be-perpetrator is a member of his household.This is not what I would call a page burner, but it was fun. Especia [...]

      The characters and setting are the strongest aspect of this work, and essential to solving the mystery and understanding that solution. The intricate plot, with its numerous red herrings and tangled motives, is ultimately unraveled and rewoven to present an entirely different picture than the one we were presented with at the beginning. This, I think, is the secret of Inspector Ghote's enduring appeal, that the works depend on an understanding of the character's personalities and motives, which [...]

      I have never read an Inspector Ghote book before, but as a lover of detective stories in general, when I saw this second hand at a book sale I bought it for one euro (I lived in France at the time).It was certainly worth one euro, but I don't know that I will be reading any more of this series. I enjoyed the final 40 ish pages when it was fast paced and exciting but the previous 150 felt like 1,500. As to the fabled insight into human nature, I must have missed it, as I found it quite repetitive [...]

      Almost gave up hope on this book. Evocative and informative but took forever to move along until the final chapters. Very repetitive. Was thinking of ripping out pages when the err bock fan was mentioned again and again and again. Last few chapters may, in fact, have been written by a different person. They were simply more focussed and the story moved along. Other than Ghote and Asif and Raman, the characters were not overly well- developed.

      C1979: FWFTB: judge, death, threats, household, remote.This is one of those series with a likeable protagonist in a less than usual setting. I suppose it helped his writing a lot to be The Times crime books reviewer for many years. He would have known what worked ie sold and knew enough people to get his writings published – and I am so glad that he did.

    7. Chris Nagy

      Very entertaining. Well written and humorous. Great depictions of life in rural India. The atmosphere and characters are very well conceived.
