Super Sleuths on trail of a dreadful, yet beautiful mystery

The Dreadful BeautySunil Gangopadhyay

Translated from Bengali by Nirmal Kanti Bhattacharjee

Cover Design and Illustrations by Subir Roy
The Dreadful Beauty marks the debut of Sunil Gangopdhyay’s immensely popular character duo of Santu-and Kakababu that has fascinated young readers for generations. The thirteen-year-old Santu is nephew-cum-assistant of Raja Roychowdhury, aka Kakababu, a former high ranking government official.

The Dreadful Beauty leads the duo to Kashmir. Kakababu is trying to discover an important relic from the first-second century AD. Which means that while everyone enjoys the beauty of Kashmir, poor Santu is busy measuring the mountains off Pahelgam-Sonmarg. But Sucha Singh, a powerful don of the area, thinks that Kakababu is in search of the fabled, long-lost gold mines of Kashmir.

Can Kakababu outwit the nosy Sucha Singh? Will the heroic duo help rewrite an important chapter in Indian history? Read the book to find out.
