What do you do when everyone thinks you killed your husband… and is now asking your help to kill theirs?

Geeta’s husband disappeared five years ago and her entire village thinks she killed him. Which would be fine, but now her fellow micro-loan group members are asking for help to kill their own husbands! Geeta’s got no more experience in the art of murder than the next woman, but she agrees to help and winds up getting caught in the middle of not one, but two spousal deaths. When her supposedly-deceased husband shows up at her door, Geeta and her co-conspirators in business and death are left scrambling to figure out how to get out of this mess of their own making.
Filled with dark humor, vibrant culture and pointed wit, Parini Shroff’s The Bandit Queens is a delightful read about one woman’s journey from assumed-murderer to actual killer, but more importantly, her journey to being a self-assured woman with her own agency.
