Hello, lovely readers! After five novels and two novellas in the Baby Ganesh Agency series, I am excited to reveal that my next book will be a historical crime novel set in 1950 in India. It's called MIDNIGHT AT MALABAR HOUSE and introduces Inspector Persis Wadia of the Bombay Police, India's first female police detective. The period is incredibly interesting. It's just three years after Indian Independence, the horrors of Partition and the assassination of Gandhi. Social and political turmoil is rife in the country. Yet Bombay remains incredibly cosmopolitan, with tens of thousands of foreigners still in the city. When senior British diplomat Sir James Herriot is found murdered at his home, Persis finds herself thrust into the spotlight... This is your chance to get your name up in lights...or at least into the book, as a named 'extra' - a minor character. All you have to do is answer the below question and press submit. Deadline to enter is midnight, 31st Dec 2019. I shall announce a winner in the New Year on my social media (so follow me on Twitter or Facebook if you don't already!) and in my next newsletter (sign up if you haven't already via my website http://vaseemkhan.com !) You can PRE-ORDER the book here: https://amzn.to/2s0coaZ - warm regards, Vaseem Khan, London

Although we haven't finalised a cover for the book yet, here is a little flavour of India in the 1950s... This advert demonstrates how Indian society saw the role of women. Clearly, Persis has her work cut out as the nation's first policewoman. I want to invite you on that journey with her. She could do with a few more of us in her corner!
