    Anjali is a young woman who wants nothing than to work alongside her father in the most mysterious and dangerous cases However, when her friend, Esme, winds up in a tragic situation, is Anjali up for than what she bargained for Meas has created a unique story based in Cambodia where a young strong woman grows in her profession as a detective The story is easy to follow and is quick to read Anjali s character is likable, even when she made the biggest mistake in her sleuthing She will probably need to learn when to do things yourself and when to ask for help Most of the storyline is pretty predictable As a reader, I knew who was going to solve the mystery and how Esme s event relates to others mentioned throughout the book However, I did not expect the ending to happen the way it did, which is a plus I do want to mention that I was sometimes confused with some words that are foreign to me Some of these words include remor...

    This book is part Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s Holmes and part Jane Austen, and for those who aren t sure if that s high praise or not it is very, very high praise The book takes the conventions and the tropes of the female lead period piece sub genre and turns it on its head by putting the protagonist, Anjali Chinak, in a traditionally male role for the time period as private investigator Read There s a lot of tension in this book, and Meas pens it masterfully There is both the implicit tension of the ticking clock narrative, in which Chinak must race against the clock to save the man she s fallen in love with from being put to death after he is charged with the murder she is trying to solve but there s than those obvious tensions There are societal tensions here as well There are gender norm tensions and racial tensions that slither throughout this narrative and draw the reader into the issues at hand while reading it I found myself parsing my feelings o...
