Book Details

It takes a village to kill a child. The village of Teetarpur outside Delhi, is famous for nothing until one of its children is found dead, hanging from the branch of a Jamun tree. In the largely Hindu village, suspicion quickly falls on an itinerant Muslim man, Mansoor. It’s up to the local policeman Sub-Inspector Ombir Singh to get to the truth. With only one officer under him, and justa single working revolver between them, can he bring justice to a grieving father an an angry village, or will Teetarpur demand vengeance instead? This shockingly powerful literary thriller is set in a brilliantly realised modern India simmering with tension and riven by growing religious intolerance.
