Sixteen 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 once 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 translation in English has been accomplished by Gopa Majumdar and Chitrita Banerji.
This omnibus edition features the ever-popular adventures of Satyajit Ray’s enduring creation, the professional sleuth Pradosh C. Mitter (Feluda). In his escapades, Feluda is accompanied by his cousin Topshe and the bumbling crime writer Lalmohan Ganguly (Jatayu). From Jaisalmer to Simla, from the Ellora Caves to Varanasi, the trio traverses fascinating locales to unravel one devious crime after another.
