Description
 

Sano Ichiro, Most Honorable Investigator of Events, Situations, and People is faced with his most challenging case when he investigates the death of Senior Elder Makino, the shoguns most trusted adviser. There is only one puzzling clue-a torn, perfumed sleeve of a kimono. Under the watchful eyes of the shoguns cousin, Lord Matsudaira, and the shoguns second-in-command, Chamberlain Yanagisaw, Sano moves with caution. For each is eager to implicate the other in Makinos death. But Sano must determine whether the death was indeed murder, and if so, whether it was motivated by politics, love, or sex.When a second violent death occurs, Sano is faced with several suspects, each with a compelling motive. Was it Agemaki, Makinos stone-faced second wife; Okitsu, his beautiful young concubine; Koheiji, his handsome male houseguest; or Tamura, his faithful retainer? Or was it a political assassination? With the help of his wife, Reiko, Sano must solve the murder as he discovers just how intertwined desire and danger really are...
