H.R.F. Keating Passes Away

Word has just reached us that British crime-fiction novelist and scholar H.R.F. Keating--the creator of Indian detective Inspector Ganesh Ghote--died yesterday of cardiac failure at age 84. Mike Ripley has a fond look back at Keating’s life and career in The Guardian, and there’s another obituary worth reading in The Telegraph.

A funeral for Keating is being planned for Friday, April 15.
