Fox Magic is a very, very short story set in Japan about Akitada Sugawara, a junior clerk in the Ministry of Law. Whilst attending to the Minister at his summer villa one evening, Akitada stumbles upon a colleague who raves about how he bedded and killed a woman who turned into a fox. Convinced that a real crime has been committed, Akitada continues to investigate the case even after the minister has dismissed it.
It's an interesting read that introduces you to the main character in the Akitada Novels. However, it's not quite worth the USD1.49 to purchase a 9K word e-book, a third of which is the preview of the 2011 Akitada novel, The Fires of the Gods.
