Synopsis[]

"During a horse race at Edo Castle the shogun's chief intelligence officer drops dead as his horse gallops across the finish line—the fourth in a series of sudden deaths among high ranking officials. Sano Ichiro, now the shogun's second in command, is asked to investigate.

Meanwhile, his wife Reiko investigates the mystery of an outcast woman accused of murder. A single fingerprint and an unexpected connection between the two cases puts Sano on the trail of an underground movement to overthrow the regime, and in the path of an assassin with a deadly touch."[1]
