Praise for The Satapur Moonstone

“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

“One of my new favorite historical mystery series is written by Sujata Massey and centers on Perveen Mistry, the only female lawyer in Bombay and one of the first women to practice law in India . . . I recommend this series to fans of the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear.”
—The News-Review

“This sequel is as lovely as the first . . . Perveen uncovers ‘a mysterious affair’ involving the death of a dowager, the kidnapping of a maharaja, a missing moonstone, and her own closed-off heart.”
—Carole E. Barrowman, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

“Fantastic.”
—The Christian Science Monitor

“A gloriously descriptive, imaginatively plotted and thrillingly concluded tale. Ms. Massey has created a majestic evocation of the period and has another captivating success.”
—Shots Magazine

“Massey’s second whodunit featuring Bombay attorney Perveen Mistry is even better than the series’ impressive debut . . . The winning, self-sufficient Perveen should be able to sustain a long series.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“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

“[The Satapur Moonstone] will certainly please readers looking for an engaging new female lead.”
—Booklist

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

“Massey is as deft at conjuring rainy jungles and isolated palaces as she was at bringing cosmopolitan Bombay to life in The Widows of Malabar Hill. It is this wealth of detail and research that make the books stand out, along with Perveen’s endearing and forthright spirit.”
—NW Book Lovers

“Perveen is back, this is not a drill!”
—Novel Suspects

“[The Satapur Moonstone] has the most delicious sense of suspense. It’s not necessary to read The Widows of Malabar Hill before undertaking The Satapur Moonstone, but why deny yourself the pleasure of experiencing two excellent novels? Needless to say, I am eagerly awaiting the third book!”
—Kittling Books

ABA Indie Next Selection | Amazon Editor’s Pick

Library Journal Editor’s Pick | The Bookseller (UK) Editor’s Pick

The Widows of Malabar Hill, with its deft prose and well-wrought characters, is a splendid first installment in what promises to be a memorable series.” 
—The Wall Street Journal  

“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
