+ What if a detective show like CSI were set in medieval Japan?
+ Who'd win in a fight between ninjas and samurai?
+ What were people like 500 years ago? Were they like us?
+ Would I be able to outsmart a treacherous ninja?
If you can relate to those, pick up this book.
A couple of its characteristics may surprise you. While you really feel like you're in feudal Japan, the detective themes here reminded me of good hard-boiled crime novels from the 1940s and 50s like those by Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and Ross Macdonald. Moreover, the main character has an immensely interesting brain; our front-row seat into his problem-solving, scheming, and worrying, reminds me of some mystery-heavy fantasy stories from Gene Wolfe, such as "The Book of the Long."
Summary: gripping story, exotic setting, interesting characters, rich writing. Highly recommended.
I'll read his next book.
The protagonist is a compelling warrior poet.
Mojo Mori's prose was, for want of a better word, beautiful.
The story kept you moving, the characters were compelling.
This was a book that I am extremely happy to have read.
I would love to read more stories about the two main characters teaming up to solve other mysteries.
