Perveen Mistry, the daughter of a respected Zoroastrian family, has just joined her father’s law firm, becoming one of the first female lawyers in India. Armed with a legal education from Oxford, Perveen also has a tragic personal history that makes women’s legal rights especially important to her. Mistry Law has been appointed to execute the will of Mr. Omar Farid, a wealthy Muslim mill owner who has left three widows behind. But as Perveen examines the paperwork, she notices something strange: all three of the wives have signed over their full inheritance to a charity. What will they live on?
Massey, geb. Banerjee (* 4. März 1964 Sussex, England) ist eine amerikanische Krimiautorin. Im Alter von fünf Jahren emigrierte sie mit ihren Eltern – ihr Vater stammt aus Indien, ihre Mutter aus Deutschland − aus England. Von 1991 bis 1993 lebte sie in Japan. „Perveen Mistry has all the pluck you want in a sleuthing lawyer, as well as a not-so-surprising—but decidedly welcome—proclivity for poking her nose into the business of others. The pages do indeed fly.“ (Marissa Stapley, The Globe and Mail) (102 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 401 Seiten noch günstig?
