Upcoming Event
Friday, July 12, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Introduced with Murder in the Marais, Aimée Leduc, Black’s smart, compelling private investigator, has been solving crimes in the City of Light for twenty years. Her nineteenth case starts with an emergency call: her mother failed to pick up Aimée’s daughter at school. Cancelling an important speech, Aimée rushes to where her mother was last seen talking to a homeless woman. That woman, who was carrying a lot of cash, has since been murdered. Following Aimée’s search for her mother, Black, a confirmed Francophile and member of the Paris Société Historique in the Marais, gives us a rich taste of the sights and sounds of the 12th arrondissement.

The first woman lawyer in 1920s Bombay, Perveen Mistry, star of Massey’s bestselling The Widows of Malabar Hill, is also, when the occasion calls for it, a detective. Her second case involves a delicate situation in the princely state of Satapur, where the royal family is divided over how to educate the young crown prince. Resolving the dispute requires a lawyer, but because the prince’s guardians—the dowager queen and her daughter-in-law—are living in purdah, they can’t speak to men. Brought in by a British official, Perveen finds herself involved in a complicated web of power plays and ancient vendettas.
