In Darkness, Death is the title of the third book in the Samurai Mysteries series written by Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler. I have already read and reviewed the first 2 books in the series, the eerie Ghost in the Tokaido Inn and the unpredictable Demon in the Teahouse.
The young merchant turned samurai Seikei is back with hos adopted father Judge Ooka who is described as the Japanese Sherlock Holmes. Their task this time is to find out who killed one of the shogun’s samurai while he should be well taken care on in the capital. Started reading this only a few days ago and will be posting my full review in the coming days so look out for it. The authors will have to keep up the high standards and enjoyability of the first two book to continue to impress me, lets see how it turns out.
It’s the eighteenth century in Japan and Lord Inaba, the most powerful lord in the country, has just been killed. If that’s not devastating enough, the murder happened right under the noses of two guards. They ask the famous Judge Ooka and his fourteen-year-old foster son and apprentice Seikei to figure out who did it. A paper origami butterfly stained with blood is their only lead.
