Miss Kinue Nomura survived World War II only to be murdered in Tokyo, her severed limbs left behind. Gone is that part of her that bore one of the most beautiful full-body tattoos ever rendered by her late father. Kenzo Matsushita, a young doctor, must assist his detective brother who is in charge of the case, because he was Kinue's secret lover and the first person on the murder scene.

    " A complex and exceedingly clever murder mystery set in post-WWII Tokyo. And in classic tradition, the solution (no, I'm not saying what it is) is all laid out for us in the last few chapters. Quite a pleasure to read. "

    " Set in 1947 Japan this mystery won a prize in 1949. It's timeless and riveting. The exotic world of tattoos is introduced to us in short five page chapters that are pefectly organized. The police are baffled and it takes an outider, a Sherlock Holmes like character, who is only introduced in the later pages of the book to solve the crimes. It's one murder after another and you know there is misdirection involved but you can't quite figure it out. It's dark, sensual, and a page turner. The author uses World War II as the seminal event in the background that might be the cause or blame of all this dishonorable behavior. Definitely going to read more by this author (deceased). "
