Sunday Salon: British Mysteries and Love in Mumbai

The Heart Is a Shifting Sea: Love and Marriage in Mumbai


New books on my shelf:

The False Inspector Dew by Peter Lovesey, October 1, 2001
Publisher: Soho Press
Genre: British mystery

The year is 1921. A passionate affair between voracious romance reader Alma Webster and her dentist, Walter Baranov, has led to his wife’s murder. The lovers take flight aboard the Mauretaniaand the dentist takes the name of Inspector Dew, the detective who arrested the notorious wife killer Dr. Crippen. But, in a disquieting twist, a murder occurs aboard ship and the captain invites “Inspector Dew” to investigate. (publisher)

The Heart is a Shifting Sea: Love and Marriage in Mumbai by Elizabeth Flock, 2018
Publication: Harper
Genre: travel, contemporary
In the vein of Behind the Beautiful Forevers, an intimate, deeply reported and revelatory examination of love, marriage, and the state of modern India—as witnessed through the lives of three very different couples in today’s Mumbai. (publisher)

I have finished two good books since the beginning of this year:
Blue Monday (Frieda Klein, #1)
Blue Monday (Frieda Klein #1) by Nicci French, 2011
Setting: London, England
Genre: mystery
Tuesday's Gone (Frieda Klein, #2)
Tuesday's Gone (Frieda Klein #2) by Nicci French, July 19, 2012, Penguin
Seting: London, England
Genre: mystery
The crimes and solutions of #1 are discussed and followed up in #2. I suggest reading the Frieda Klein mysteries in sequence.
