Sneha Mathan makes the fictional state of Satapur in 1920s India seem real through her portrayal of lawyer-turned-detective Perveen Mistry. Mathan's narration is quick, light, and easy on the ear, helping us make sense of the palace intrigue that soon entangles Perveen. Listeners travel with her to the conservative Satapur area where she tries to make sense of a massive feud in the royal family between the widowed grandmother and mother. Mathan balances the heroine's plucky, smart spirit and ongoing arch interior monologue with a deftness that has us chuckling even as the danger around her mounts. Will she able to settle the women's dispute and navigate palace intrigues? Mathan keeps us hanging on every word in order to find out. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
