Feluda is the unforgettable creation of world-renowned film maker Satyajit Ray. Though Feluda carries a firearm, he rarely uses it. His chief weapon is his razor-sharp brain with which he solves all the mysteries that come his way. The most popular character in the world of Bengali detective fiction, all of Feluda's stories are collected in two volumes in an attractive gift box
These are gripping tales of suspense and mystery featuring Satyajit Ray's inimitable detective, Feluda. Between 1965 and 1992, Satyajit Ray wrote a total of thirty-five Feluda stories, featuring the master sleuth Pradosh C Mitter, his assistant Topshe, and Lalmohan Babu alias Jatayu, a bumbling writer of crime fiction..
The locales range from Gangtok and Varanasi to Jaisalmer and Ellora, apart from Feluda's home town of Calcutta. The plots involve murder, intrigue and adventure, narrated in a racy, humorous style. All of this makes for enormously entertaining fare - and it is no wonder that each Feluda book has been a best-seller.
All the Feluda stories that Ray wrote are now available together in this omnibus edition of 2 volumes. For the first time ever, the stories are arranged in chronological order of composition and one can note Feluda's development from an unknown amateur detective (In Danger in Darjeeling) to a famous professional private investigator.
Volume One of this omnibus features 16 stories. This is the definitive Feluda collection - a treasury that all fans of mystery writing will want to possess.
Originally written in Bengali, this work is also available in English translation accomplished by Gopa Majumdar and Chitrita Banerji.
