Between 1965 and 1992, Satyajit Ray wrote a total of thirty-five Feluda Stories, featuring the detective Pradosh C. Mitter, his teenaged assistant Topshe, and Lalmohan Babu alias Jatayu, a bumbling writer of crime fiction. The plots involve murder, intrigue and adventure, narrated in a racy, humorous style. The locates range from Kedarnath to Kathmandu, and from Puri to London. Each mystery and its solution makes for enormously entertaining fare-and it is no wonder that every Feluda book has been a best-seller.
All the Feluda stories that Ray wrote are now available together in this two-volume omnibus edition. For the first time ever, the stories are arranged in chronological order of composition. This second volume shows Feluda at the peak of his sleuthing career. He is at his inimitable best as he tracks down the last known letter of Napoleon, or investigates a sinister crime that has to do with Tintorettos painting of Jesus. In The Case of the Apsare Theatre, Feluda foils the insidious plans of a clever murderer, and in The House of Death, he investigates the theft of a priceless manuscript. Manglal Meghraj, Feludas arch-enemy, reappears in The Criminals of Kathmandu as the kingpin in a case involving spurious drugs, and again in The Mystery of the Pink Pearl, but Feluda is equal to the challange. Also include here are the two final Feluda cases, Robertsons Ruby and The Magical Mystery, both of which were published posthumously.
This is the definitive Feluda collection-a treasury that all fans of mystery writing will want to possess.
