Japan, March 1700. The strife between Sano Ichiro, the samurai detective who has risen to power in the shogun's court, and his enemies has escalated to the brink of war.

When a long-buried skeleton with mysterious links to the shogun suddenly comes to light, Sano and his wife, Reiko, who defies social conventions by joining in his investigations, must confront dangerous secrets. What was Sano's own mother doing on the night when a burning kimono ignited a blaze that nearly destroyed the city? The shogun gives Sano and Reiko just three days to find out--or risk losing not only their position at court but their families' lives.

The Fire Kimonois another dazzling historical mystery from Laura Joh Rowland.

LAURA JOH ROWLAND is the author of twelve previous Sano Ichiro thrillers, includingThe Snow Empress,whichPublishers Weeklychose as one of the Best Mysteries of 2007.She lives in New Orleans.

???Pure entertainment...it takes us to an exotic time and place and overwhelms us with intrigue, romance, adventure and frequent bloodshed??? ???The Washington Post

???Outstanding...Rowland has given her hero his greatest challenge yet in this suspenseful look at feudal Japan.??? ???Publishers Weekly (starred review)

???An exciting and enthralling story set in a vividly rendered setting. I was captured by it from the moment a Shinto priest, buffeted by winds, his robe flapping 'like a swan in mad flight,' discovers those buried remains heaved from the earth.??? ???The Boston Globe

???The historic setting is mesmerizing. Great escape fiction. ??? ???Kirkus Reviews
