Soho Crime

The novel, The Satapur Moonstone, opens on tragedy and tension a century ago in India: after the two male rulers have died in obscure accidents, two queens are locked in bitter dispute involving the heir to the throne.

Baltimore writer Sujata Massey tells us about the latest assignment of her protagonist, lawyer Perveen Mistry. You can catch Massey at the Ivy Bookshop on Falls Road tomorrow evening at 7 pm. 

Then we switch genres: as two members of the Baltimore Science Fiction Society tell us about nurturing sci-fi writers, the group’s upcoming convention, and why they are fans. Learn more about BaltiCon, May 24-27, here.
