Book review of “The Krishnapur Kidnappings” by Sitaraam Jayakumar

Here is the second book from author Sitaraam Jayakumar titled “The Krishnapur Kidnappings”. I had already read and loved his earlier work (guilty of not sharing my review yet) . So, when I found his 2nd book, I jumped reading immediately.


Jane Sridhar, a 7th-grade student of Korbin International School is kidnapped. There is no demand for ransom. An attempt is made to throw suspicion on the child’s father. But the brilliant inspector Ranjan Raghav suspects this is not a run of the mill kidnapping case. Some very deep and sinister motive lies behind the crime.

Soon another girl Beena Naik is abducted when she is on her way back home after a visit to a friend’s place. There is no demand for ransom this time either. What is the motive behind the kidnappings? Is there a pattern to it? Is it in some way related to the occult?

Join inspector Ranjan Raghav and his able deputy Mathur as they slowly unravel a web of horror, deceit and mania.

My take:

This is a fast paced thriller that kept me wanting to read-on till done. Author knew how to engage readers from the first few lines in first chapter. Characters are well defined and have significant impact.

An intelligent pulse pounding plot and made me read in one go. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one.

What are you reading today?
