    The Japanese police are rather busy with a rash of seemingly motiveless murders the stabbing of a political philosophy professor from Kyonan University the poisoning of a popular Tokyo nightclub owner and songwriter and the hit and run death of a recently elected member of the National Diet In each case the person who would benefit most from the death has a solid alibi and beyond that person no one else seems to have reason them dead Natsuhiko Hino is the political science tutor who moves into the vacant professorship at the university His fiancée Chisako Tanaka is worried Worried because Hino has been different ever since his two year scholarly trip to America Worried because of his apparent ties to Aki Kiriu the beautiful singersongwriter whose career has soared since the death of her rival And worried because he seems to be marking time that has nothing to do with the number of days until their marriage She can't resist doing a little investigation on her own with the help of a reporter who has been covering Kiriu's story Then when a fourth murder close to home occurs an intricate plot is uncoveredMisa Yamamura tells an elegant but very formal story Whether she has her characters bowing ceremoniously or not the very writing makes it seem as though they are continuously which gives the story an odd feel but that also may be due in part to the translation The story is very smooth and the characters are interesting Yamamura uses a half inverted method for the plot She doesn't tell you upfront who did it but the the unfolding of the story makes it very obvious who and how The real mystery to me was whether the police who did not seem to handle the murder sites very professionally but maybe that all happened off stage as it were would ever catch on to what was happening The story is most interesting for its characters and for the peek at Japanese culture and relationships Reader's Block Please reuest permission before reposting ThanksFirst posted on my blog

    Nice easy read although a little bit unconvincing in the American scene
