5.0 out of 5 stars Love Japan, Then read
If you love Japan then this book is for you. Well the whole Sano Ichiro series. Rowland describes medieval Japan in a way that makes the reader able to see, feel and smell what the characters do. A must read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mystery set in 17th century Japan
This book obviously styles itself on James Clavell and his novels on Japan, especially the epic Shogun, and in comparison it appears to fall short of such a high standard. The plot is is finely structured , but I never felt involved and ultimately felt unsatisfied having read a book which just retreads old ground
