The Widows of Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey


Perveen Mistry, the daughter of the respected Zoroastrian family joins her father’s law firm, becoming one of the first female lawyers in India. When her family’s firm agrees to handle the will of Mr. Omar Farid, a wealthy Muslim who left behind three widows, Perveen notices something strange. As she goes through Farid’s papers, they show that all three of his wives have signed over their inheritance to a charity. Questions start to to surface for Perveen. What will they live on if they forfeit what their husband left them? Are they being taken advantage of by an unscrupulous guardian? No matter the answer, the investigation eventually escalates to murder.
