Allmänna fakta



This one got a little slow for me in the middle but was an ultimately satisfying mystery for Perveen to solve at a remote jungle palace.

Liked the introduction of some new characters including a potential love interest for Perveen.

I really enjoy this series even though it’s old fashioned and a little stilted because of the social norms of the 20s.

Perveen is great and I can’t wait to see what she gets up to next.

I loved the Rei Shimura series by Massey and it was nice to drop into a book written by a familiar author.

I enjoyed the slowish pace and the immersion in this completely unfamiliar culture and time period and learning so many new things while also trying to solve a mystery. This novel takes on the systemic misogyny of life 100 years ago among deeply religious people and I love the empowerment of our main character (and her friend) despite those obstacles. Perveen is based on actual pioneering women lawyers in India during this time so it’s not all completely out of left field.

Anyway, I was a fan of this book and I’ll continue reading the series.

I really enjoyed the book for many reasons. I learned so much about India in 1916-1920. And about the culture and different peoples and religions in India. I
learned about women and their rights in this time period also. Then the characters were very interesting and my favorite is Perveen Mistry; she is an extraordinary woman with high moral standards and great intelligence. I liked all the details - description of the clothing, architecture, etc. The plot was intriguing with lots of twists and turns which kept my attention throughout.

I want to read the next one in the series.
