But with the help of an ever resourceful gossip columnist, Ghote has soon assembled a list of some very likely suspects: a fading star who stood to inherit many of Dhartiraj's roles; India's number-one superstar, who was Dhartiraj's rival at the box office (and in bed); and last but hardly least, the actor's trusted stand-in. Ghote could easily make a case for each of them wanting the great Dhartiraj off the boards and into permanent retirement....

Filmi, Filmi, Inspector Ghote Reviews
Inspector Ghote is at first surprised and pleased to be sent to investigate the murder of a movie star. But when he gets there, he finds that this is not going to be the quick and easy case he hoped for. He knows very little about the film world, and lead after lead seems to go nowhere. This may be the case that ruins his career.I like Inspector Ghote. He is a very sympathetic character, with real human emotions. He is dazzled by the lovely leading lady. He imagines himself covered in glory and at the center of attention. He gets furious with stubborn suspects. But he sticks with it until he solves the case.If you like mysteries set around movies, you might also like Frequent Hearses by Edmund Crispin and The Mirror Crack'd by Agatha Christie.
I got this book at DI and read it on a trip. It takes place in Bollywood and was written during the 70's, I think. I'm not sure how much I liked the main character of Inspector Ghote. The setting in Bollywood was really fun. There were a few parts that if you have seen any Bollywood movies are really funny. At one point he is interviewing a witness (a Bollywood actor) and starts picturing him going into a musical number at a cultural heritage site and later riding in a new sports car. You have to see Bollywood to appreciate the book. It wasn't wonderful, but it had some great parts.
An enjoyable if average Inspector Ghote whodunnit. Our hero has to find out who murdered a Bollywood film star. Fun in the depiction of the Indian film industry, the story is rather linear, without plot breadth, and majors on Ghote's internal dialogues and thoughts as he tries to remain level-headed while in awe to the stars he has to question.
Enjoyed every book in this series. Just 4 to go.
