We all know Satyajit Ray as famous and Academy award winner filmmaker. But he was mystery writer too. He wrote many detective novels on his detective character Feluda and Feluda’s adventure. “The Curse of goddess” describes one of those adventures. An old man goes out to picnic with his big family and dies there. Everybody assumes it was “The curse of Goddess”. But was it really curse or well planed murder. Feluda has to find that?
Book keeps you hooked up till the end like any mystery novel should. Book was originally written in Bengali but translated in English by Gopu Mazumdar.

It is a Must Read Book. If I have to rate this book I will give it 7 out of 10.
