A Li Du Novel

Former imperial librarian Li Du is journeying with a trade caravan bound for Lhasa that detours to a hidden valley, where he discovers a dead monk sitting on wooden bridge. His robes are rent to reveal a strange symbol on his chest. When a snowstorm forces the caravan to seek hospitality from the local lord, Li Du determines that the monk was murdered.


Customer Reviews

Hart seamlessly melds the complex politics of 18th-century Asia with a superior fair-play plot . . . reminiscent of a classic golden age puzzle mystery, and Hart populates it with well-rounded characters.
