    " ok is not that exciting like other mystery but have several twist, the only thing that I didn't like are the titles at the beginning of the chapter, because they are kind of spoilers, (skip them!) but interesting to read different things from long time ago. "

    " A 1940s translation into English by a Dutchman of a 17th century Chinese novel based on the life of a 7th century, Tang Dynasty court official. Sounds like something of academic interest, but tough to read? Nope -- actually a really intriquing mystery novel that reads well while at the same time informing the reader of traditional Chinese legal and social history. A fun read, with great supplemental material by the translator. Va Gulik went on to write a series of further adventures of Judge Dee based on his other reading of 7th century China. "

    " Thrilling. Amazing as to what a Chinese judge of that era was permitted in the name of justice and the terrible consequences to him if he was wrong. "
