The third book in their Samurai Detective series, "In Darkness, Death" won an Edgar for the Best YA novel of 2004. Mystery writer Michael Connelly called the Hooblers' most recent nonfiction book, "The Crimes of Paris," "a book you can't put down. I found it to be irresistibly engrossing."

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"The authors of [The]Ghost in the Tokaido Inn (1999) return to the Japan of nearly 300 years ago for another whodunit solidly clad in accurate historical and cultural detail. The expertly unraveled mystery, as well as the vivid, exotic setting and fast-moving plot, will delight fans of Lensey Namioka's historical thrillers."—Kirkus Reviews
