Packed with mystery and suspense, this collection of six stories of intrigue and high adventure featuring Satyajit Ray's inimitable detective are sure to win many more admirers for Ray’s imperturbable sleuth Feluda.
Super sleuth Feluda and his cousin Topshe, asked by an ex-shikari to guard a precious gem, realize that they will need all their guile to outwit a cunning criminal who will stop at nothing to take it from them, in the first story of this volume.
The duo then team up with Lalmohan Babu in A Killer in Kailash to prevent the smuggling of priceless sculpture from the caves of Ellora. The unraveling of an ancient riddle ends in a spine-chilling climax with a deadly man-eater in The Royal Bengal Mystery; while an old man and a talking parrot challenge Feluda with another cryptic riddle in The Locked Chest.
The Mystery of the Walking Dead has the trio contending with an eccentric, a clairvoyant and a séance in a remote village, and in the last story, Feluda solves wordplays and anagrams to fulfill the wishes of a dying man while an escaped circus tiger stalks the streets.
