Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

While it is true that Lady Mingyu didn’t love General Dang Zhi, she didn’t hate him enough to murder him either. However, Mingyu discovers that someone else truly did despise Dang when she arrives at his home in Changan and finds his headless corpse. The only man Mingyu can turn to for help is the one man she has never been able to charm: Constable Wu Kaifeng. Discovering that Mingyu is involved in yet another murder case convinces Wu that the beautiful courtesan is nothing but trouble, and this proves to be even truer once Wu realizes his feelings for Mingyu are seriously interfering with his mission to find the killer. The colorful sights, sounds, and even scents of Tang Dynasty China provide a fascinating backdrop, and romance readers tired of cookie-cutter settings will devour this expertly crafted novel. By incorporating some intriguing investigative details into the plot, Lin also gives historical-mystery readers an incentive for giving this captivating series a chance. --John Charles
