The Honjin Murders
by Seishi Yokomizo
It’s a classic “Locked Room” murder, with all the elements of the Golden Age. Thoroughly intriguing!
Then, on the night of the wedding, the Ichiyanagi family are woken by a terrible scream, followed by the sound of eerie music – death has come to Okamura, leaving no trace but a bloody samurai sword, thrust into the pristine snow outside the house. The murder seems impossible, but amateur detective Kosuke Kindaichi is determined to get to the bottom of it.
