¿A Suspenseful Murder Mystery¿
A dead body washes up on the shore of Nagasaki Japan. It is Dutch Trade Director Jan Spaen. Sano Ichiro was only supposed to inspect Nagasaki, but he somehow manages to get caught up in this murder mystery. And what starts as a murder investigation, turns into a fight for Sano¿s life. I liked this book because its ¿level of suspense¿ was usually quite high. However, there were parts of the book that were somewhat dull. The book kicks off on the right foot with an execution in the prologue. Then it continues to appall me with a sword duel in the first chapters. Unfortunately the book couldn¿t keep the pace it started and my interest was soon lost. Then my interest returned for an exciting part, but soon dissipated as the dullness returned. It was like this the entire time. And, the book went into way too much detail of the people¿s sexual practices. I don¿t want to know that kind of stuff yet, or ever. The book was very long and drawn out, and it should have been shortened. A plus was the occasional use of Japanese words and phrases such as gomen nasai, sumimasen, and bakarashii (meaning I¿m sorry, excuse me, and ridiculous respectively). Another plus was the advanced English vocabulary. This book is for audiences mature enough for the intense death scenes and sexual content. If you have a weak stomach, don¿t read this book.
