Is this advisable? I'm asking because an East Indian detective would be considered to be an "atypical" protagonist in the mind of the westerner and the western world. Although I would surmise that it is not so "atypical" to the eastern world. I have doubts as to whether using an east Indian detective would garner a large reader base as it would generally cause readers to turn away from it. For instance if you look at the amazon sales rank and number of reviews for the title Inspector Singh Investigates https://www.amazon.com/Inspector-Singh-Investigates-Peculiar-Malaysian/dp/1934609897 It has very few reviews compared to similar American mysteries (over ~200 to 1000 reviews). As a side note, I wonder if Hercule Poirot was an "atypical" detective to the western world. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
