Synopsis

In this classic Japanese locked room mystery an amateur detective investigates a string of gruesome unsolved murders 
 
Astrologer, fortuneteller, and self-styled detective Kiyoshi Mitarai must solve a macabre murder mystery that has baffled Japan for 40 years-in just one week. With the help of his freelance illustrator friend, Kiyoshi sets out to answer the questions that have haunted the country ever since: Who murdered the artist Umezawa, raped and killed his daughter, and then chopped up the bodies of six others to create Azoth, 'the perfect woman'?
 
With maps, charts, and other illustrations, this story of magic and illusion-pieced together like a great stage tragedy-challenges the reader to unravel the mystery before the final curtain falls.
