Vaseem Khan is the bestselling author of the Baby Ganesh Detective Agency series, a crime series based in Mumbai, India and featuring a baby elephant. The first book in the series, The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra, was a Times bestseller, a Waterstones’ paperback of the year, and an Amazon Best Debut. Vaseem first saw an elephant lumbering down the middle of the road in 1997 when he arrived in Mumbai to work as a management consultant. It was the most unusual sight he had ever encountered and served as the inspiration behind his series. Vaseem was born in London in 1973, gained a Bachelors degree in Accounting and Finance from 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.
