The Perfect Murder by Ruskin Bond

51KG1LCYAtL.jpgI received The Perfect murder and other stories by Ruskin Bond as a review copy from the publisher, Rupa publications and I would like to them for the same. The book is a collection of eight stories by famous authors like Arthur Conan Doyle, Wilkie Collins, WW Jacobs and Edgar Allan Poe. There is one by Ruskin Bond.

The blurb:

In that dim corner of the cafe was planned the perfect murder. Paul had long since realized that the affair was not so easy of accomplishment as he had so airily suggested. For the thing must be done without violence, without clues, without trace.

Is the perfect murder ever possible? Find out, in this collection of stories where plenty of mysterious and strange crimes occur. Featuring some of the best writers of this genre, from Arthur Conan Doyle and Wilkie Collins to Edgar Allen Poe and Ruskin Bond, these stories will keep the reader hooked as they try to guess the motives, alibis and identity of the murderer. Baffling and exciting, this book is for those who enjoy pitting brains against some of the most accomplished writers of mystery stories.

My take:

The book is ideal one to be read on a cold winter afternoon with a big mug of coffee.

Thank you Rupa for making us revisit the stories.
