The Widows of Malabar Hill

The Widows of Malabar Hill
Massey, Sujata

Bombay, 1921: Perveen Mistry, the daughter of a respected Zoroastrian family, has just joined her father's law firm, becoming one of the first female lawyers in India. Armed with a law degree from Oxford, Perveen also has a tragic personal history that makes her especially devoted to championing and protecting women's legal rights. Inspired in part by a real woman who made history by becoming India's first female lawyer, The Widows of Malabar Hill is a richly wrought story of multicultural 1920s Bombay as well as the debut of a sharp and promising new sleuth, Perveen Mistry.


Assigned to execute the will of a wealthy Muslim, Perveen Mistry investigates why the three widows have signed over all of their inheritance to a single charity.
