Publisher's Summary

He has much in common with super-sleuths Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, but there's a difference - Judge Dee Jen-djieh was a real person! Gathered here are tales of actual crimes solved by the magistrate of Chang-ping in 7th-century China. Listen as Dee ventures down winding paths in ancient graveyards to consult the spirits of the dead, and hear him solve real-life crimes through astute deductions. The intriguing stories in this collection include "The Case of the Double Murder at Dawn," "The Case of the Strange Corpse" and "The Case of the Poisoned Bride."

    "A different legal thriller"

    Because this is a traditional Chinese legal thriller, it would be best if you listened to the explanation of the differences between American/European crime stories and traditional Chinese detective stories. The translator has a 40 minute appendix describing the various devices within the traditional Chinese detective novel and it is VERY helpful. His appendix begins at 7:42:15.
