This was a bang-up ending for this trilogy which ends the Sano series. In resolving all issues, there are more bodies than at the end of Hamlet. My willing suspension of disbelief was stretched almost to the breaking point a number of times. However, Rowland did her usual great job of describing the scene, weaving in the effects of measles on people who had no immunity, and the daily living conditions of the rulers and the various classes of people in the city of Edo. From that standpoint the whole Sano series is very good historical mystery fiction. Sano's roller coaster fortunes do keep the reader on the edge of her seat.
