Prashani Rambukwella's first book, Mythil's Secret, won the 2009 Gratiaen Prize, thrilling readers both young and old with its originality, fast pace and authentic Sri Lankan voice. A corporate writer by profession, Prashani is a poet and playwright but is happiest when writing stories for children.

The exciting sequel to Mythil's Secret

Mythil must put aside his problems with a school bully when his secret friend Asiri suddenly regains a part of his memory. But is Asiri's fantastic story from wartime Ceylon a figment of Mythil's imagination or did it really happen? Can Mythil use what he has learned on Asiri's Quest to overcome his problems at school? Join Mythil and Asiri on another spine-chilling, time-travelling adventure to find out!

Mythil's Secret is that rare thing in children's fiction - a work that discusses both adult and children's issues equally well... Yet, what takes Mythil's Secret beyond much children's literature, and where it really succeeds, is in its willingness to address the strengths, weaknesses and responsibilities of grown-ups, too, especially in relation to kids.

Uncle Arthur the lovable amateur detective does it again!

Uncle Arthur the lovable amateur detective does it again! Arthur driving through wild country is caught in a torrential downpour and is forced to take a detour. His host for the night is a man who is straddled with a deep personal dilemma, an imposter, who traps Arthur into an unsuspecting diabolica plot; betrayal of a childhood companion. Who exactly was Malcom, whose strange pronouncement predicting his own demise on a precise date draws Arthur deeper into a web of intrigue and deception? The setting is colonial Ceylon, 1945, just at the conclusion of hostilities. The lovable Arthur stumbles along, in relentless pursuit of the improbably and unravels, the intricate plot strand by strand, the end reached by an amazing coincidence.

Here, ... is Uncle Arthur – quite a king of his own making, who, with dogged determination, binds together the threads of a story that carries all the suspense, adventure and mystery that the author has so devotedly pieced together – The Nation

Prof Mahasara Gunaratne, though a distinguished medicine man, writes in beautiful English and is extremely fond of mystery in a colonial history setup, as evidenced from his writing in two books. Like Sir Coonan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, Gunaratne has created a character named Arthur in his series of mystery fiction. I enjoyed his two books which took me back to my enjoyment of such fiction as a teenager – K S Sivakumaran
