“You don’t have to believe in ghosts in order to enjoy a ghost story”. : By one of the most beloved Indian writers, Ruskin Bond, ‘A Face in the Dark’ is a collection of 28 short ghost/supernatural stories which are brilliantly written and is a treat to all short story lovers.

The writing style is simple yet engaging with an impressive setting in the background. Get ready, to travel a journey which is full of mysteries and thrilling adventurers. All the stories are fast paced and have the capability to make you intrigued throughout, with each turning page.

The use of flickering lights, eerie sounds made by pine forest in the dark, elements of fear and darkness are really outstanding which dramatically increases the suspense & tension.

From the beginning till the very end, the story has the power to completely arrest the reader’s attention and imprint an unforgettable image on his/her mind.
