As Japan’s Tokugawa shogunate nears the end of its rule, Edo North Magistrate Toyama no Kinsan is called upon to judge the most difficult case of his career. In a masterfully woven tale, he has to face the truth about his estranged father’s possible involvement in a nefarious plot to take over rule of the Hizen Shimabara clan by assassinating the rightful lord, his son, and install one of Shogun Ienari’s offspring as daimyo. With some exciting action and a possible romance that may end in tragedy this is one of the finest entries in the long running series about the steely nerved magistrate wearing the Toyama Cherry Blossom tattoo!
