On the day he retires, Inspector Ashwin Chopra inherits two unexpected mysteries.

The first is the case of a drowned boy, whose suspicious death no one seems to want solved. And the second is a baby elephant.

As his search for clues takes him across the teeming city of Mumbai, from its grand high-rises to its sprawling slums and deep into its murky underworld, Chopra begins to suspect that there may be a great deal more to both his last case and his new ward than he thought.

And he soon learns that when the going gets tough, a determined elephant may be exactly what an honest man needs.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Keeps things heartwarming while tackling corruption at the highest levels and violent crime at the lowest. Endearing and gripping.”

    Sunday Times (London)

  • “A cast of intriguing characters that it will be a joy to see develop. But the greatest strength is the setting in the teeming city of Mumbai, from which the color and atmosphere flows out of every page in this enjoyable, whimsical tale.”

    Daily Express (London)

  • “Narrator Sartaj Garewal’s characterization makes the most of the humor in this story…[and] gives the listener alternating moments of humor and drama. Garewal is a versatile narrator. He distinguishes between the wide cast of characters with a range of vocals including high pitches for annoying relatives, like Chopra’s mother-in-law, and a singsong cadence for bumbling police officers. For this tale of mayhem, mystery, and corruption, Garewal weaves a spell that entrances the listener. Winner of the AudioFIle Earphones Award.”


  • “The deep love for Mumbai and its people—warts and all—that Inspector Chopra shares with his creator infuses the novel from the beginning. The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra is certainly a delightful and uplifting crime caper, but it also comes with an edifying dose of serious social comment.”


  • “The mystery kept me turning the pages, but it was the adorable antics of Chopra’s elephant companion and the vivid descriptions of life in Mumbai that made this a fantastic, heartwarming read.”

    First for Women

  • “A winning debut…Khan’s affection for Mumbai and its residents adds to the novel’s charm.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “[A] thought-provoking mystery…A promising debut to a series that, one presumes, will feature Chopra finding ways to stay in the game.”
