The quick Vaseem

The Reading Agency’s Quick Reads are extremely good value, and when they invite some of the best authors to write for them, it’s a win-win. Even if you happily read normal length novels, these short story length little books are a bargain at £1. And if you find reading hard, look no further, as here is a grown-up story, with large print and not too many pages. It’s just right.

When I discovered that one of the 2018 books was an Inspector Chopra story, by Vaseem Khan, I just had to read it. I can’t get enough of Ganesha, the baby elephant who helps his master solve crimes, and Inspector Chopra & the Million Dollar Motor Car is merely a shorter book, offering as much enjoyment as the full length ones.

It’s a locked room kind of mystery, with a very expensive car vanishing from a garage, just as it was about to be delivered to its rich new owner.

And for anyone who’s not yet met Chopra and Ganesha, there is enough of an introduction to understand who is who in this Mumbai based crime series.

If there is a problem with the Quick Reads, it is that we could use many more of them. Just imagine how much good could, and would, come of having lots and lots of high quality, easy reads for adults. Six titles is fine, but if we could make that every month, at least?
