For centuries the Koh-i-Noor diamond has set man against man and king against king.


Now part of the British Crown Jewels, the priceless gem is a prize that many have killed to possess.


So when the Crown Jewels go on display in Mumbai, security is everyone's principal concern. And yet, on the very day Inspector Chopra visits the exhibition, the diamond is stolen from under his nose.


The heist was daring and seemingly impossible. The hunt is on for the culprits. But it soon becomes clear that only one man - and his elephant - can possibly crack this case...

Vaseem Khan

Vaseem Khan is the author of the Baby Ganesh Agency crime novels set in modern Mumbai, India. His aim with the series is to take readers on a journey to the heart of modern India, showcasing both the colour and darker aspects of this incredible country. The first novel in his new historical crime series set in 1950s India, MIDNIGHT AT MALABAR HOUSE, features India's first female police detective.

His first book THE UNEXPECTED INHERITANCE OF INSPECTOR CHOPRA was a Times Bestseller and an Amazon Best Debut. The second in the series THE PERPLEXING THEFT OF THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN won the 2017 Shamus Award for Best Original Private Investigator Paperback. The third, THE STRANGE DISAPPEARANCE OF A BOLLYWOOD STAR focused on India's movie industry, and the fourth, MURDER AT THE GRAND RAJ PALACE, was described by Publisher's Weekly as “the best entry in the series to date”. The fifth is called BAD DAY AT THE VULTURE CLUB.
Vaseem was born in London in 1973, studied finance at the London School of Economics, before spending a decade on the subcontinent. He returned to the UK in 2006 and has since worked at University College London for the Department of Security and Crime Science. Elephants are third on his list of passions, first and second being great literature and cricket, not always in that order.
