I have one last giveaway for 2020, a year which has needed all the help it can get in the way of good things happening.
This time I'm giving away an autographed copy of Nev March's Murder in Old Bombay which I purchased from one of the best independent bookstores in the USA, The Poisoned Pen.
Here's the synopsis of the book:
"In 1892, Bombay is the center of British India. Nearby, Captain Jim
Agnihotri lies in Poona military hospital recovering from a skirmish on
the wild northern frontier, with little to do but re-read the tales of
his idol, Sherlock Holmes, and browse the daily papers. The case that
catches Captain Jim's attention is being called the crime of the
century: Two women fell from the busy university’s clock tower in broad
daylight. Moved by Adi, the widower of one of the victims ― his
certainty that his wife and sister did not commit suicide ― Captain Jim
approaches the Parsee family and is hired to investigate what happened
that terrible afternoon.
But in a land of divided loyalties, asking questions is dangerous. Captain Jim's investigation disturbs the shadows that seem to follow the Framji family and triggers an ominous chain of events. And when lively Lady Diana Framji joins the hunt for her sisters’ attackers, Captain Jim’s heart isn’t safe, either.
Based on a true story, and set against the vibrant backdrop of colonial India, Nev March's Minotaur Books/Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Award-winning lyrical debut, Murder in Old Bombay, brings this tumultuous historical age to life."
One autographed hardcover edition of Nev March's Murder in Old Bombay.
It has a protective
mylar cover on the dust jacket, and is fresh from The Poisoned Pen
Bookstore. You can see it in the photo above along with a few of my holiday decorations (which are not included).
