Here is yet another collectible volume form the master anthologist, Ruskin bond. With his own subtle brand of humour, Mr Bond skillfully and creatively compiles a set of short stories, all of which have a strand of wickedness of some kind running through them. Sometimes the protagonists are wicked; sometimes the author is.

But rather than being conventional tales of good and evil, this collection showcases the dark side that all human beings have, and the sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic, sometimes frightening situations that reveal this aspect of their characters. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
