I enjoy the author s Baby Ganesh series although it s lost a bit of its luster for me Seriously how many books can you write starring a baby elephant So I was delighted to find this new series by Khan and even happier to discover that Midnight at Malabar House is a gem of a book The author s knowledge of Indian history is impressive and he seamlessly weaves that history into an entertaining story I enjoyed his protagonist IMO male writers have trouble nailing some of the angst felt by professional women particularly those in break out roles and supporting characters The pacing kept me interested although I skimmed a bit during long prose sections These passages were telling not showing but I know enough Indian history that they might be revelatory to someone elseIf you re looking for an interesting piece of fiction set in Bombay this might be just the ticketRecommended Ghosts you re looking for an interesting piece of fiction set in Bombay this might be just the ticketRecommended
