9780143331827: Puffin Classics:: The Rhythm of Riddles Three Byomkesh Bakshi Mysteries

Byomkesh and his friend-cum-foil Ajit are perhaps the best loved of Indias literary detectives. These three mysteries are classic whodunnits that represent the best of detective fiction. From a murder in a boarding house with too many suspects, to a mystery with a supernatural twist, and then busting a black marketeering ring in rural Bengal, the stories in this volume take Byomkesh to different locales on his quest for truth, and bring out the ingenuity and astuteness of this super sleuth. Translated into English for the first time by award-winning translator Arunava Sinha, the breathless pace and thrilling plots of these action- packed adventures will win Byomkesh a new generation of admirers.

He went on to become a popular and renowned writer of ghost stories, historical romances and childrens fiction in Bengali. He was the recipient of the Rabindra Purashkar in 1967 for his novel Tungabhadrar Tirey. He also received several other awards before his death in 1970.
