Inspector Ganesh Ghote comes to London!The Indian police inspector (pronounced Go-tay) is sent to attend an international conference on drug smuggling; and in cold, drizzling London he is faced with his first case outside India.It is a very odd case. The girl, Ranee, niece of relatives of Ghote who live in London, has vanished--seduced, kidnapped, murdered, so her relatives allege, by the notorious pop singer Johnny Bull. Ghote is hounded by the relatives into spending his few leisure hours from the conference in trying to find Ranee--known for her brilliance as The Peacock.
