The Widows of Malabar Hill
1920s India: Perveen Mistry, Bombay's first female lawyer, is investigating a suspicious will on behalf of three Muslim widows living in full purdah when the case takes a turn toward the murderous. Inspired in part by the woman who made history as India's first female attorney, this is a richly wrought story of multicultural 1920s Bombay as well as the debut of a sharp and promising new sleuth.
