Murder and mayhem are coupled with Japanese folklore and fable in this riveting tale of suspense. When the body of one of Nagano Prefecture's most prominent businessmen is found propped against a tree on Poison Plain, home of the legendary Demoness Maple, Inspector Takemura finds himself searching for the killer with the help and hindrance of an esteemed Tokyo professor and a beautiful university student. As the bodies begin to multiply in the sleepy mountain town of Togakushi, the three learn that the resemblance of the murders to those of regional folklore is more than a coincidence. This novel based on Japanese legend and written by famed author Yasuo Uchida will mesmerize mystery buffs as well as those interested in the culture and folklore of Japan.
