About the book
‘Windswept’ stars Padma Mehta, a long-time labor organizer who is on the verge of making the deal of her life when it all falls apart. Now, she has to rely on the neighbourhood scam artist and a handful of stowaways to save her city, her planet, and Occupied Space — all before Happy Hour. With a host of well-crafted characters, ‘Windswept’ is a part detective, part space operetta with snappy dialogue, adventure, and plenty of comedic timing.
