Super Sleuths go digging again

The King of the Verdant IslandSunil Gangopadhyay

Translated from Bengali by Tridiv Chowdhury
Cover Design and Illustrations by Subir Roy

“Do you want to go by ship or plane?”

When Kakababu asked his nephew Santu this question, little did Santu know that the mystery they were to solve this time was wilder than anything he could have imagined.

And once the duo reach their destination—a remote archipelago—they find their investigation blocked by the apathy of the local officials. Undaunted, they plunge headlong into a dense forest on a dreaded island, home of ferocious aboriginals. They encounter a gang of ruthless, trigger-happy foreigners who will stop at nothing. And they come face to face with the man himself—The King of the Verdant Island.

But why have the foreigners come at all? What is the mysterious object that men are ready to die—and kill—for?

All the answers can be found on the pages of The King of the Verdant Island.
