Called away from the crisis by the shogun's orders to investigate a mysterious skeleton, Sano and his wife, Reiko, must confront dangerous, long-buried secrets. What was Sano's own mother doing on the night when a burning kimono ignited a blaze that nearly destroyed the city? The shogun gives Sano and Reiko just three days to find out - or risk losing not only their position at court but their families' lives as well.

yes. The historical and cultural backdrop and the characters are interesting.
The interplay of the politics plus the murder mystery made for a good listen.
would read other books by this author.
In the first few minutes of this book, the second in rank to the Shogun tells another character to shove something up his backside. That's when I stopped listening.
