Life in modern Tokyo is a blast for Rei Shimura, a young Japanese-American woman who enjoys busy days as an antiques dealer and steamy nights with a devoted new boyfriend. But things come to a standstill when Rei overpays for a rare old chest of drawers for a wealthy client, the owner of a famous Zen temple in Kamakura. The exquisite tansu turns out to be a fake: the worst deal Rei has ever made. When the temple family turns on Rei -- and the con man who sold the tansu is murdered -- she realizes she's opened a Pandora's box of deception and murder. A young martial artist, an aspiring rock singer, and an elderly antiques mentor all become part of Rei's search for the killer through the shadows of an ancient culture. As her world begins to rapidly and inexplicably unravel, Rei realizes that it will take strength, wit, and a Zen attitude to survive.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything's Zen This is the second book in the Rei Shimura mystery series by Sujata Massey. Rei, a California girl, who is half Japanese and half American, is living in Japan and trying to navigate her way through Japanese society and get her antiques business off the ground, when she finds herself in the middle of a murder. The character of Rei is smart and sexy and continues to grow as the series evolves. The plot had a lot of twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end.
