Each month, members of the Soho International Crime Club receive a new selection from Soho Crime’s library.

The books arrive early, before they are actually available on bookstore shelves, and oftentimes are accompanied by related trinkets, exclusive access to author interviews and content, and complimentary related titles.

Now is an especially propitious time to join. Sujata Massey, recently crowned a best author of 2019 by the Baltimore Sun, is May’s featured author.

In The Satapur Moonstone, Massey returns readers to the 1920s India of Perveen Mistry, Bombay’s first female lawyer.  This time Perveen must travel north while reluctantly in the employment of the British Raj to assist in a complex dispute over a late maharaja’s estate. Instead of a straight-forward legal matter she finds a treacherous web of palace intrigue and a history of suspicious deaths.

Publishers Weekly gave the novel a starred review, saying, “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. ”

The Satapur Moonstone ships the first week of May.
