Missing. Disappearing children in Deepa Anaparra’s debut novel titled, Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line, will make your blood run cold. Anaparra describes life in a city in India, and what parents, police and children do after children begin to go missing. The descriptive prose offers a setting in vivid detail, and the perspectives of different characters draw us into what for most of us will be an unfamiliar environment. The fine storytelling propels us to turn pages as we begin to care deeply about these characters, especially the children.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
