The Satapur Moonstone by Sujata Massey

Best-selling author, Sujata Massey, once again takes us back to 1920’s India with Perveen Mistry, Esquire, a female Bombay lawyer who has an uncanny knack for solving mysteries. In the Moonstone of Satapur, Perveen is hired to become a liaison between the Royal family of Satapur and the British government. The job is perfect for her as she will have to investigate the problem of a young Maharajah’s education after his widowed mother disagrees with the dowager Maharani’s expectations for his future. Before going to the palace, Perveen must travel to a British circuit house to get her assignment in the rural area of Satapur. The handsome British officer in charge is kind and considerate to her and Perveen finds herself feeling a very strong attraction to him. (Hope this story line continues!) After a dangerous, frightening trip to the palace, Perveen learns that the Royal family is thought to be cursed since there have been two Royal deaths that have occurred in the past few years. Ms. Mistry thinks that something is amiss and must find out the truth about these deaths while trying to avoid her own demise. Sujata Massey does such a wonderful job researching and building her stories. I love reading anything that she has written as I know that I will learn something new and be totally immersed in her story from the very beginning. This book will be published May 14, 2018 so if you haven’t read the first Perveen Mistry novel, The Widows of Malabar Hill, you have plenty of time to enjoy and learn about Perveen from the very beginning! Highly recommended!!
