The Satapur Moonstone

The Satapur Moonstone

The highly anticipated follow-up to the critically acclaimed novel The Widows of Malabar Hill.

India, 1922: It is rainy season in the lush, remote Sahyadri mountains, where the princely state of Satapur is tucked away. A curse seems to have fallen upon Satapur’s royal family, whose maharaja died of a sudden illness shortly before his teenage son was struck down in a tragic hunting accident. The state is now ruled by an agent of the British Raj on behalf of Satapur’s two maharanis, the dowager queen and her daughter-in-law.
The royal ladies are in a dispute over the education of the young crown prince, and a lawyer’s counsel is required. However, the maharanis live in purdah and do not speak to men. Just one person can help them: Perveen Mistry, Bombay’s only female lawyer. Perveen is determined to bring peace to the royal house and make a sound recommendation for the young prince’s future, but she arrives to find that the Satapur palace is full of cold-blooded power plays and ancient vendettas. Too late, she realizes she has walked into a trap. But whose? And how can she protect the royal children from the palace’s deadly curse?

    Probably a 3.5 that is closer to a 3, but it gets the bump up for being the book to get me out of my reading slump. Watch me talk about the book in my October wrap up:

    3.5 stars, rounded up. The author does a great job evoking a remote corner of India--vivid descriptions of a place far from Perveen's cosmopolitan home in Bombay.The mood of the book is almost gothic-...

    I loved the first book and couldn't wait to join Perveen on another lawerly adventure. I listened to the audiobook once again (a little sad that they switched narrators as I liked the previous narrato...

    Great Historical Mystery! (TW suicide)I love this historical mystery series and if you’re already a fan of Perveen from the first book I don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t also enjoy this one...
