The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag is another Corbett classic. Although it is one sustained story instead of broken into several shorter stories like many of his works, Corbett still maintains the reader's interest throughout. This leopord's ability to outsmart his adversaries and escape the many attempts on its life is unbelievable! Definitely a page turner.
