A fantastic and heartwarming read... I can't wait to see what happens next! First for Women on The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra
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, with many of Chopra's preoccupations mirroring those of his creator. The Bookseller on The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra
Wildly inventive ... a great warmth and wisdom infuse this and the other Baby Ganesh books. Booklist (starred review)
“Utterly charming.” Guardian (London), praise for the series
