Puffin Classics: The Rhythm of Riddles

Sub title: Three Byomkesh Bakshi Mysteries

Author: Saradindu Bandyopadhyay

Translated By: Arunava Sinha

Saradindu Bandyopadhyay’s immortal detective Byomkesh Bakshi has enjoyed immense popularity for several decades. From being a household name in the Calcutta of 1930s when he was first created to a popular face on TV in the 1990s, Byomkesh and his friend-cum-foil Ajit are perhaps the best loved of India's 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.
