In this session author Vaseem Khan will take readers on a journey from the days of the Raj to the heart of modern India, a colourful and conflicted environment of vast new wealth and historical problems. Vaseem will explore the background to his bestselling Baby Ganesh Detective Agency novels, examining the realities of life in a country being transformed by unprecedented global change.

He will also answer the intriguing question: how do you fit an elephant into a crime story? The first book in the series, The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra, was a Times bestseller. The latest Bad Day at the Vulture Club is about the murder of a wealthy Parsee in Mumbai's notorious Towers of Silence where the Parsee dead are left to be eaten by vultures.
