So good you won't want to put it down, even to get off a plane...? [Laura Joh] Rowland hits her stride as a writer who can deal equally well with the pacing of plot and the nuances of character development...? Rowland clearly knows how to build suspense and action, a talent that she demonstrates with great skill."-New Orleans Times-Picayune "Bundori is one of those mysteries in which the itch to find out whodunit recedes before the pleasure of prowling through a different world."-Washington Post Book World "Sano may carry a sword and wear a kimono, but you'll immediately recognize him as an ancestor of Philip Marlowe or Sam Spade."-Denver Post "A colorful pictorial style that conveys...?xcitement and...?anger."-The New York Times Book Review
