This is the first book in the Ichiro series (which is seven books so far). This is a great mystery series in which you become very involved with the charaters. Rowland does an excellent job bringing the world of seventeeth century Japan to her readers.

As soon as I read the first page, I realized that I'd read this book about 6 years ago. However, since I could only remember a few scenes (those few, however, were very vivid), I read through the first chapter and found myself hooked again.
Interesting to see that what I remembered was usually visual scenes of great detail, that some of what if remembered was in the form of "premonition," and that there were a few elements that I didn't remember at all.

An excellent mystery with plenty of culture thrown in, Shinju introduces Sano Ichiro, a yokiri who struggles with the desire to know the truth and the cultural traditions of obedience and duty.

I'm delighted to know that there are at least 6 more Sano mysteries left to read!
