Lady Shonagon and Lieutenant Yukinari return! Robert Forrest's popular thriller set in 10th century Japan.
Two funerals on the same day: one in the city, with full pomp and ceremony for the Empress's father, the Lord Chancellor; the other, outside the city walls, for the erratic and errant Lady Mazago. Shonagon and Yukinari attend different funerals, with the intention of solving the same murder - that of Lady Mazago.
The Pillow Book is inspired by the writings of Sei Shonagon, a poet and lady-in-waiting to the Empress of the 10th Century Japanese court.
