The Widows of Malabar Hill
Perveen Mistry Mysteries: Book #1
“Inspired by a real person, Perveen Mistry, one of the first female lawyers in 1920s India, this second book in the series again follows a storyline where the mystery can ONLY be solved by a woman because the women in the household live in full purdah (strict seclusion, no men). So many fascinating details about the 1920s, India's legal system, and most importantly, the myriad different cultures, customs, and ethnic groups that make up India's complex society.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
“I loved this novel! Sujata Massey is a strong, confident storyteller and this captivating mystery, set in 1920s Bombay, features superb world-building, a riveting plot, and great characters. Perveen Mistry is a richly written protagonist: By turns confident and conflicted, she strives to do the right thing and is more than capable of getting herself out of trouble. Highly recommended for a fresh take on the mystery genre.”Stuart, Bookshop Santa Cruz
