Daidoji Shin, former louche layabout turned amateur investigator, and his long-suffering bodyguard, Kasami, are called away from the comforts of the City of the Rich Frog and into Unicorn lands to investigate a seemingly open-and-shut case of murder. But it's never that straightforward... A condemned woman's life is at stake, and the outcome may prevent a war between noble families. But that's only the beginning of this mystery: Shin will come face to face with a sinister seditionist organization that could have much deeper consequences than he could imagine.

"It's a pleasure to follow the exploits of one of my favorite sleuths, Daidoji Shin... I love the voice of Shin - languid, biting, self deprecating - he slays me with his many humorous lines. Five stars." -- Eyes to See
"I really enjoyed this book, knowing what happened did lend the twist as we tried to figure out the reasons for the crime, because they really do matter, and whilst there was some general predictability, it wasn't glaringly obvious. Instead the book makes you feel smart as you go "ahh I think I know", then leads you to they why, what giving it's all a bit of a twist." -- Big Geordie Geek
"I'll admit to being fooled by the twist until very late on, but even if you manage to guess where the plot is going, it's an entertaining journey to follow along. The main cast continue to develop and new figures are added with the continuing levels of diversity that we've come to expect from an Aconyte story." -- The Story Board
