Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Soneela Nankani

Mystery & Suspense • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

With an engaging South Indian accent and lively characterizations, Golden Voice narrator Soneela Nankani paints a vibrant listening experience in this first title in a planned historical mystery series by a Bangalore professor. Set in 1920s colonial Bangalore, the story centers on new bride Kaveri and her husband, Rumi, a doctor, who attend an Anglo-Indian banquet where a murder occurs. When a defenseless woman is implicated, Kaveri launches an investigation. Well-researched history and evocative descriptions of food and clothing, furnishings and landscapes color the intrigue. Nankani rises to the challenge of portraying many British and Indian characters from all walks of life, including clipped memsahibs and coarse beggars. Her sympathetic delivery of the story’s cultural themes increases listeners’ appreciation. A.C.S.
