'On the morning of 19 September, while Miss Mountstephen was still away, Miss Garnett-Orme was found dead in her bed. The door was locked from the inside. On her bedside table was a glass. She was positioned on the bed as though laid out by a nurse or undertaker.'
From 'A Mussoorie Mystery' by Ruskin Bond
There are very few readers who don't get a feeling of satisfaction from reading a good short story. It is the ending to a story that can make the reader sit up and think about it--some can be good, some twisted and some absolutely anticlimactic! Read about a couple who set out to get the perfect gift for each other and the surprising twist in the end in 'The Gift of the Magi'; a robotic dancing partner, which creates more menace than a human partner ever can in 'The Dancing Partner'; and Bond's own telling of a mystery set in Mussoorie, which caught the fancy of none other than Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes; and many more such stories. Selected and edited by Ruskin Bond, this collection is abound with several fantastic, scary, surprising and humorous stories.
