Vaseem Khan first saw an elephant lumbering down the middle of the road in 1997 when he arrived in India to work as a management consultant. It was the most unusual thing he had ever encountered and served as the inspiration behind his series of crime novels.

He returned to the UK in 2006 and now works at University College London for the Department of Security and Crime Science where he is astonished on a daily basis by the way modern science is being employed to tackle crime. Elephants are third on his list of passions, first and second being great literature and cricket, not always in that order.

The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra is a Mumbai-set mystery. Inspector Chopra inherits an elephant and an unsolved murder on his last day at work. You can buy the book here.

Vaseem Khan joins us today to share his five most influential books.
