Synopsis of book»

Shortlisted for the Kobo eDunnit Award

Returning to their tranquil Sussex home, Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes discover a beautiful rock mysteriously planted in the flower bed – a rock they last saw in the Emperor’s garden in Tokyo. Perhaps the dangerous investigation they carried out for him might not be as complete as they had thought?

One year earlier, Russell and Holmes board the Thomas Carlyle, bound for California with a visit to Japan on the way. A holiday, they think – but intrigue raises its head when a fellow passenger agrees to tutor the couple in her native language and customs. Young Miss Haruki Sato, they begin to suspect, is not who she claims to be. From the winding lanes of Oxford to the palaces of Japan, the ingenious duo embark on an utterly compelling adventure of politics and espionage.
