A young woman suddenly drops down dead... The investigating magistrate is certain that she was murdered... And that her wealthy husband is the killer... But is this magistrate allowing his relationship with the dead woman to cloud his judgement... ? And if it was murder, how exactly was the woman murdered... ? And is the husband really the killer... ? Ennin investigates. This is the 83rd ENNIN MYSTERY. 'That famous Japanese detective, the illustrious Ennin-sensei... Highly entertaining, although parting slightly from Japanese / oriental myth and customs, thus making the stories more accessible to the western mindset... ' Qualánqui 'The greatest of Japan's detectives, Ennin, and of course his trusted servant and chronicler Kukai... Full of intrigue, action and excitement... Great escapism... ' M.

' Daphne Frampton 'I especially like the sort of quiet and abiding love that exists between Ennin and Kukai, master and scribe. Also, there's a kind of sweeping majesty in the description of Japan...
