Six exciting stories of deceit, intrigue and murder, featuring Ray's super-sleuth Feluda, a.k,a, Pradosh Mitter, and his lieutenants, cousin Topshe and the dim-witted crime-writer, Lalmohan Babu.
Their adventures begin in 'The House of Death' when a holiday to the beaches of Puri is interrupted by the theft of a priceless manuscript, quickly followed by a mysterious murder. Feluda's skills are once more put to the test in 'Napoleon's Letter' when the last known letter of the great emperor disappears and its owner is found murdered. Locating a missing person becomes the challenge in 'The Disappearance of Ambar Sen' which turns out to be a most unusual case, testing Feluda's powers of detection to the full. 'Crime in Kedarnath' centres around a priceless pendant that a Maharaja generously bestows on Upadhyaya, a homoeopath, for curing him of asthma. But, when Upadhyaya renounces his worldly life to become a sanyasi and leaves for Kedarnath, he is hotly pursued by three different people. Can Feluda unravel the mystery before something disastrous occurs? The theatre becomes the scene of crime in 'The Acharya Murder Case' but Feluda is equal to the challenge. Lalmohan Babu's joy at seeing one of his novels filmed is quickly replaced with fear as the set becomes a place of murder and theft in 'Murder in the Mountains', but even the most cunning of villains is no match for Feluda. Gripping drama and suspense combine with humour and memorable writing to form a splendid treat for Ray's fans everywhere.
'Feluda's experiences are read by both the young and the old with the same enthusiasm and thrill.'
