Lawyer-sleuth Perveen Mistry returns in another fascinating Bombay mystery.

The delightfully clever Perveen Mistry, Bombay's first female lawyer, returns in an adventure of treacherous intrigues and suspicious deaths.

India, 1922: It is rainy season in the lush, remote Sahyadri Mountains southeast of Bombay, where the kingdom of Satapur is tucked away. A curse has fallen upon Satapur's royal family, whose maharaja and his teenage son are both dead. The kingdom is now ruled by an agent of the British Raj on behalf of Satapur's two maharanis, the dowager queen and the maharaja's widow.

The royal ladies are in dispute over the education of the young crown prince, and a lawyer's council is required - but the maharanis live in purdah and do not speak to men. Just one woman can help them: Perveen Mistry.

Perveen is determined to bring peace to the royal house, but when she arrives she finds that the Satapur palace is full of cold-blooded power plays and ancient vendettas. Too late, she realises she has walked into a trap. But whose? And how can she protect the royal children from the deadly curse on the palace?

"Vivid and clever...love her to bits."
Kerry Greenwood, bestselling author of the Miss Phryne Fisher series 

"...even better than the series' impressive debut...The winning, self-sufficient Perveen should be able to sustain a long series."
Publishers Weekly

"Simply put, The Satapur Moonstone is a flawless gem. Historical mysteries don't get any better than this."
New York Journal of Books

"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
