Product description


Praise for The Bombay Prince

"The Bombay Prince is the third delightful installment of Sujata Massey's mystery series set in 1920s India. Heroine Perveen is much more than a sari-clad Miss Marple: she's Bombay's first female lawyer as well as a keenly intelligent sleuth, a trail-blazing woman balancing the weight of family tradition with her own dreams. Perveen's investigation into the mysterious death of a young university student coincides with the imperial visit of the future Edward VIII, and the resulting trail of breadcrumbs through royal receptions, street riots, squalid jails, and lavish hotels makes for a deliciously satisfying read!"
--Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Rose Code

Praise for the Perveen Mistry Novels

"Well-researched and convincing."
--The Wall Street Journal

"Bright, determined . . . Perveen, whose aim is to help women and children, continues to engage us, thereby ensuring a long-running series."
--The Seattle Times

"Marvelously plotted, richly detailed . . . This is a first-rate performance inaugurating a most promising series."
--The Washington Post

"Perveen Mistry has all the pluck you want in a sleuthing lawyer, as well as a not-so-surprising--but decidedly welcome--proclivity for poking her nose into the business of others. The pages do indeed fly."
--The Globe and Mail

--The Christian Science Monitor

"Once again Massey does a superb job of combining a fascinating snapshot into 1920s British-ruled India with a top-notch mystery. She has created a strong, appealing heroine who is forging her own path in a rapidly changing world."
--Library Journal, Starred Review --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
