Synopsis

The Cloud Pavilion by Laura Joh Rowland

A fortress in the sky...Japan, 1701. A woman is brutally attacked within a bamboo prison as clouds swirl around her head. Meanwhile, at Edo Castle, samurai detective turned chamberlain Sano Ichiro is suspicious of his old rival, Yanagisawa, who has been oddly cooperative since his return from exile. But just as Yanagisawa's true motives begin to emerge, Sano's estranged uncle comes to him for help: his daughter has disappeared, and he begs Sano and his wife - who once suffered through the kidnapping of their own son - to find her before it is too late.

Reviews

Positively smokes with historical atmospherics. Publishers Weekly Exotic and beguiling... a tour de force of imagination. -- Robert Harris Masterfully evokes the subtleties and contradictions of seventeenth-century Japan. Kirkus Reviews Like Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose, Rowland's novel is an excellent whodunit. Booklist
