First edition. Fine in dust jacket. A collection of short stories that while linked, stand on their own. Stories include a murder defiling a Buddhist temple, crimes of passion, and heroism of old age. "A touch of Charlie Chan's oriental wisdom; a soupcan of Inspector Clouseau's whimsical inability to be wrong, despite himself; a splash of Hercule Poirot's elegant powers of deduction" --- Enter Matsuo Saito ... the newest inspector in a Japanese police department.
