Vaseem Khan


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.
