On March 27th, 2011, H.R.F. Keating, prolific mystery author, passed away at the age of 84. By all accounts, Mr. Keating was a charming person and excellent friend, and will be missed by many. My sincerest condolences go out to the family and friends of Keating.
Personally, I had never read one of his novels before. He was on a list of authors I like to call my “you really should give this guy a chance someday” list. After hearing of his death, however, I decided to read the first Inspector Ghote novel, The Perfect Murder, in his honour.
