Another excellent addition to this series. Sano is approached by his estranged uncle to find his missing daughter. Sano finds her, but she has been raped and dumped in the rain near the temple from which she was abducted. Her husband disowns her and she returns to her father's house in disgrace. Life in Edo (Tokyo) is hard in the 17th century. Reino and Sano determine they will find the kidnapper and bring him to justice. Sano is still feuding with the former chamberlain who has returned from exile to a place of honor with the shogun. Sano knows Yagishara is fomenting dissension, but he cannot prove it. This series is always full of information on the life of a samurai and the intricate details of walking the edge between offending the shogun and the rules of bushido, that govern the life of a samurai.
