Book Review: Juni Dagger by Arjun Chandra Kathpalia

Juni Dagger
Author: Arjun Chandra Kathpalia
Publisher: Rupa Publishers
Rating: 4/5

Thriller novellas are rare enough but thriller novellas with a tinge of humour that offer moments of genuine laughter are rarer still. ‘Juni Dagger’ comes in a complete package- with an amalgamation of thrill, suspense and light humour. Wittingly written, this book describes the adventures of Juni Dagger, a semi-professional connoisseur of food and a professional detective. Along with his team, he set out on a journey to hunt down a serial killer. His love and respect for food is something to fall for. How beautifully the author has drawn out the connection between the two!

With real characters and by giving the sidekicks equal importance, the plot turns out to be intriguing and entertaining as well. Juni Dagger acts as the cornerstone of the story. With exemplary vocabulary and intelligent mind-mapping of events, the author has done a fabulous job.

The story is new and the writing is impressive. With simple yet impactful language, the author has successfully reached out to the hearts of the readers. The storyline is strong and the characterization of Juni further adds on to the advantage.

Best wishes to the author!
