TOI Micro review: ‘Missing Presumed Dead’ explores the nuances of dealing with a family member battling mental illness

“Manral’s prose is racy and immersive. The book is a brave attempt at bringing out the importance of seeking medical help for mental health issues. She beautifully projects, with the depiction of a family in utter pain, how mental illness eats away a woman’s chance at happiness and a healthy, full family.

Missing Presumed Dead is a must-read for everyone who knows a dear one battling mental illness.”

It is so much more and thank god for that! I read one of Kiran’s books before picking up this one and thoroughly enjoyed it. That one was eerie, with some suspense and kept me on the edge. This one on the other hand is more contemplative, it has its elements of thrill but what pulled me toward it was the language (simple and effective), characterisation and pacing. At no point did I feel the book go flat or not living up to my expectations.
