The Widows of Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey is a 2018 Soho Press publication Set in 1920s Bombay Perveen Mistry is one of the first female lawyers in India Although she works in her father s law firm as a woman she isn t allowed to argue a case in court But when a wealthy mill owner dies his three widows who are practitioners of Purdah express a desire to donate their inheritance to charity As the executor of his will this development raises Perveen s suspicions She decides a visit to the widows is in order so that they fully understand their rights However she uickly finds herself embroiled in a genuine murder mystery when the estate trustee is found murdered The story moves back and forth between present day 1920s and 1916 revealing Perveen s shocking and painful history Like most avid readers I have books that languished on my TBR list for ages before I finally got around to reading them I ve had my eye on this one for at least a year I knew it was a book I d been excited to try but at this point I can t remember how the book was marketed I m thinking I probably added it because of the cultural and historical aspects but of course I m never one to turn down a good mystery I have since learned that Perveen s character was based on two real life trailblazers Camelia Sorabji and Mithan Tata Lam which is most interesting and inspiring As with any attempt to combine two genres a skilled balancing act is reuired While the story flips back and forth between the 1920s and 1916 the author chose not to alternate the chapters as is standard with many dual timeline stories I think there was a reason why the author inserted the flashbacks to 1916 in this manner but for those who are tuning in strictly for the mystery the momentum and pacing might feel a bit jarring However as a huge fan of historical fiction I was very invested in Perveen s backstory and didn t mind taking a break from the mystery in order to understand her personally to discover the drive behind her passion her devotion to women s rights and her sensitivities to the widows and why she fought to protect them and discover the truth behind the murder I love developing an emotional attachment to my crime solvers whether it be a seasoned detective or an amateur sleuth As this looks to be the first book in a planned series the author has laid out a solid foundation to build not only good mysteries but cultural history and character growth I m pretty sure Perveen could become one of my favorite characters I found every part of this story fascinating The cultural landscape and the historical details were incredible I found myself doing a few Google searches and I will certainly look at the suggested reading the author provided The murder mystery is one of the best I ve read a long while Recently it has occurred to me that pure mysteries are not as common as they once were Unless one turns to the cozy mystery genre for a genuine whodunit most books falling into the mystery category are focused on the psychological action or suspense elements than on guessing who the culprit is So I m buoyed by the popularity of this book and hope it jump starts authentic mysteries back into mainstream popularity again Overall I enjoyed this book immensely I have the second book on hold at the library right now Can t wait to see our courageous protagonist back in action 5 stars
