As she grew up, Petula Caesar's African-American father praised her good grades and her light skin. He raised her to be deferential to white people and to see blacks as dangerous.

Then, Sujata Massey’s newest novel is “The Widows of Malabar Hill," set almost a century ago in what is now Mumbai, India. Her heroine is a pioneering lawyer who comes upon murder, kidnapping and a secret passageway as she investigates a suspicious will. 

She will be speaking at Mystery Loves Company Bookseller on August 2nd in Oxford, Maryland.
