Book Description:
Soon after taking up his first magisterial post in the godforsaken district of Peng lai, Judge Dee must look into the murder of his predecessor. His job is complicated by the simultaneous disappearnce of his chief clerk and the new bride of a wealthy local shipowner. 'The China of old, in Mr. van Gulik's skilled hands, comes vividly alive again.' Allen J. Hubin, New York Times Book Review'If you have not yet discovered Judge Dee, I envy you that initial pleasure . . . the discovery of a great detective story. For the magistrate of Poo yan belongs in that select group headed by Sherlock Holmes.' Robert Kirsch, Los Angeles TimesRobert van Gulik (1910 67), a Dutch diplomat and an authority on Chinese history and culture, drew his plots from the popular detective novels that appeared in seventeenth century China.
