The secret keeper of Jaipur : a novel / Alka Joshi.

Joshi, Alka, (author).


It's the spring of 1969, henna artist Lakshmi arranges for her protégé Malik to intern at the Facilities Office of the Jaipur Royal Palace. Power and money still move seamlessly among the wealthy class, but only if certain secrets remain buried. When the cinema's balcony tragically collapses on opening night, blame is placed where it is convenient. But Malik suspects something far darker and sets out to uncover the truth. As a former street child, he always knew to keep his own counsel - it's a lesson that will serve him as he untangles a web of lies.
