Third in the Otami series. "Melvile weaves in the subtileties of Japanese & British manners and the stylized protocol of diplomatic life with delicioud irony." says the Washington Post. "The plot is as neatly crafted as a Zen garden, & the lovingly detailed pictures of Japanes life add a lingering flavor to the mystery." according the London Tribute. "Impeccably written and carefully organized, with the Japanese background drawn in with a calligrapher's pen.' reports the London Times Literary Suppliment.

Mystery set in Japan. Wonderful series, wonderful book. Gripping mystery, not just for those interested in Japanese culture.
