The Rhythm of Riddles: 3 Byomkesh Bakshi Mysteries – Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay, translated by Arunava Sinha

16636071Saradindu Bandyopadyay’s immortal detective Byomkesh Bakshi has enjoyed immense popularity for several decades. From being a household name in the Calcutta of 1930s, when he first created, to a popular face on TV in the 1990s, Byomkesh along with his friend-cum-foil Ajit is perhaps the best-loved of India’s literary detectives. This collection brings together three of his classic whodunnits.

From a murder in a boarding house with too many suspects to a mystery with a supernatural twist, and then busting a black Рmarketeering ring in rural Bengal, these stories take the super sleuth to different locales on his quest for truth and bring out his ingenuity and astuteness. 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.
