The Satapur Moonstone (A Perveen Mistry Novel)

Not nearly as good as her Widows of Malabar Hill, but tolerably entertaining. Perveen Mistry, the lady lawyer in 1920s India, heads to a mountainous region for an assignment to help determine the education plan of a young majaraja. Family intrigue abounds, his older brother recently dead, poisoning of various foods happening all around. I don’t like how Massey seems to have her characters acting all on strings like marionettes, but there is a lovely richness in detail of the surrounding Indian countryside.
