The redoubtable Perveen Mistry makes her triumphant return to solve a shocking murder on the streets of 1920s Bombay

November, 1921. Edward VIII, Prince of Wales and future ruler of India, is arriving in Bombay to begin a four-month tour.

The Indian subcontinent is chafing under British rule, and India's only female lawyer, Perveen Mistry, isn't surprised when local unrest spirals into riots. But she's horrified by the death of Freny Cuttingmaster, an eighteen-year-old student who falls from a second-floor gallery just as the prince's grand procession is passing by her college.

Freny had come for a legal consultation just days before her death, and what she confided makes Perveen suspect that her death was not an accident. When Freny's death is indeed ruled a murder, Perveen knows she can't rest until she sees justice done.

Industry Reviews
'Perveen [Mistry] 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 . . . a deliciously satisfying read!'
Kate Quinn, The New York Times bestselling author of The Rose Code

'Fantastic! . . . Anyone who likes Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries will love this.'
Bri Lee, bestselling author of Eggshell Skull, on The Satapur Moonstone

'Massey has created the best gumshoe of them all - the utterly wonderful, exceptional Perveen Mistry. Bright and brilliantly aware.'
The Maitland Mercury on The Satapur Moonstone
