It was death at first sight...
Miss Ripley-Bean was sitting on a bench beneath the deodars, having a quiet moment to herself, when suddenly two shadows, larger than life, appeared on the outside wall; they were struggling with each other. Only afterwards, when a dead body was discovered, did Miss Ripley-Bean realize she had witnessed a murder - and that the murderer had seen her...
In this marvellous collection of brand-new stories set in the Mussoorie of a bygone era, Ruskin Bond recounts the deliciously sinister cases of a murdered priest, an adulterous couple, a man who is born evil, and the body in the box bed; not to forget the strange happenings involving the arsenic in the post, the strychnine in the cognac, a mysterious black dog, and the Daryaganj strangler.
As the elderly Miss Ripley-Bean, her Tibetan terrier Fluff, her good friend Mr. Lobo, the hotel pianist, and Nandu, the owner of the Royal, mull over the curious murders, the listener will be enthralled and delighted - until the murderer is finally revealed.

Cute and clever
Clever stories! Wonderful narrator. Loved the characters. The descriptions of the hotel and countryside are great.
