From the Publisher...

Only a handful of thrillers -- like Gorky Park, The Alienist, or Laura Joh Rowland's own debut novel, Shinju, set in 17th-century Japan -- can bring an entire world to life. In her dazzling new novel, Rowland gives us her most complex and compelling story yet.

The wedding of Sano, the shogun's Most Honorable Investigator, is interrupted by the murder of a beautiful concubine, poisoned by the ink in an exotic tattoo. As Sano's investigation draws him into the forbidden world of the shogun's women, he must also begin to learn about his own new wife -- who is, according to tradition, as unknown to him as the name of the killer, and who has a decidedly untraditional determination to help in her husband's work.
