Bombay raised and Oxford educated, Perveen Mistry is one of only a handful of women practicing law in 1920s India, working diligently to build a career for herself at her father's law firm—and to escape a dark chapter of her past. When questions arise about a late client's will, religious custom forbids Perveen's father from interviewing the client's three widows, who live in seclusion from public life and from men. However, Perveen, as a woman, is allowed to meet them—and quickly recognizes that the man charged with protecting the widows and their inheritance has only his own interests at heart. When a member of the household is murdered and a child goes missing, what began as a quiet domestic dispute becomes an all-consuming obsession for Perveen as she races to stop a killer…and to put her own demons to rest. Inspired in part by India's first female lawyers, this engrossing and inspiring whodunit introduces a trailblazing sleuth readers can't help but cheer for! (KG)
