The highly anticipated follow-up to the critically
acclaimed novel The Widows of Malabar Hill.
India, 1922: It is rainy season in the lush, remote Sahyadri
mountains, where the princely state of Satapur is tucked
away. A curse seems to have fallen upon Satapurâ€™s royal
family, whose maharaja died of a sudden illness shortly
before his teenage son was struck down in a tragic hunting
accident. The state is now ruled by an agent of the British
Raj on behalf of Satapurâ€™s two maharanis, the dowager queen
and her daughter-in-law.
The royal ladies are in a dispute over the education of the
young crown prince, and a lawyerâ€™s counsel is required.
However, the maharanis live in purdah and do not speak to
men. Just one person can help them: Perveen Mistry, Bombayâ€™s
only female lawyer. Perveen is determined to bring peace to
the royal house and make a sound recommendation for the
young princeâ€™s future, but she arrives to find that the
Satapur palace is full of cold-blooded power plays and
ancient vendettas. Too late, she realizes she has walked
into a trap. But whose? And how can she protect the royal
children from the palaceâ€™s deadly curse?
