Book Nook: Murder in Old Bombay by Nev March

Vick Mickunas' 2020 interview with Nev March

One of my favorite aspects of talking to writers about their books are the times when I have the opportunity to talk to authors who have just published their first books. One gets such a vicarious sense of excitement when an author is beginning a career and that first published work is being sent out into the world.

Nev March has just published her first novel, "Murder in Old Bombay," and I have a feeling that we are going to be hearing a lot more from her in the future. I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery. It is set in the early 1890's in India and her sleuth is a devotee of the exploits of the legendary Sherlock Holmes. In our interview Nev talked about how her mother would read them the works of Arthur Conan Doyle for bedtime stories. "Murder in Old Bombay" is a loving tribute to that fictional denizen of Baker Street.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library, Clark County Public Library, Dayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
