Japan, 1701. A woman is brutally attacked within a bamboo prison as clouds swirl around her head. Meanwhile, at Edo Castle, samurai detective turned chamberlain Sano Ichiro is suspicious of his old rival, Yanagisawa, who has been oddly cooperative since returning from exile.

But just as Yanagisawa’s true motives begin to emerge, Sano’s estranged uncle comes to him for help: His daughter has disappeared, and he begs Sano and his wife—who once suffered through the kidnapping of their own son—to find her before it is too late.

 
Publishers Weekly calls Laura Joh Rowland's The Cloud Pavilion "One of the best mysteries of the year."

Praise for The Cloud Pavilion

“One of the best mysteries of the year.”—Publishers Weekly

“Rowland has a painter’s eye for the minutiae of court life, as well as a politician’s ear for intrigue.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Entertaining. . . . . Rowland creates a well-crafted portrait of an exotic place and time.” —The Times-Picayune on The Cloud Pavilion

“An exercise in pure entertainment . . . [The Fire Kimono] takes us to an exotic time and place and overwhelms us with intrigue, romance, adventure, and frequent bloodshed.” —The Washington Post
