Love the way this has ended, you kept Dorothy's family at arm's length and their coldness seemed so threatening to Akil it was a relief that he was removed.  Lovely perspective.

The central part of the story

Posted on Tue, 16 Dec 2014

The central part of the story works really well, a father shaken by the idea that it might have been his daughter who was killed and changing his life.  I'd really like more of a sense of India.

This has such a comforting tone to it, death as nothing frightening but going home.  I wouldn't say it was horror, perhaps the tag fantasy fits better.

I'm glad that this ended as a message of reassurance as the story truly is a parent's nightmare. Very well constructed, you create ebbs and flows of tension.
