Death in Leamington — The elephants


Elephants play a thematic role in my second novel Death in Leamington. The death of businessman Arish Nariman who grew up watching these beasts in the timber jungles of Sri Lanka leads to a full-blown murder investigation. The location of the “elephant wash” where the circus owner Sam Lockhart reputedly bathed his elephant troupe in the River Leam is a further link. And the gruesome fate of Nariman’s murderer is a final reminder to the reader that “elephants never forget”.
