Some brief overview of this book

Japan, 1709. The shogun is old and ailing. Amid the ever-treacherous intrigue in the court, Sano Ichir has been demoted from chamberlain to a lowly patrol guard.

His relationship with his wife Reiko is in tatters, and a bizarre new alliance between his two enemies Yanagisawa and Lord Ienobu has left him puzzled and wary. Sanos onetime friend Hirata is a reluctant conspirator in a plot against the ruling regime. Yet, Sanos dedication to the Way of the Warriorthe samurai code of honoris undiminished.

Then a harrowing, almost inconceivable crime takes place. In his own palace, the shogun is stabbed with a fan made of painted silk with sharp-pointed iron ribs. Sano is restored to the rank of chief investigator to find the culprit.

This is the most significant, and most dangerous, investigation of his career. If the shoguns heir is displeased, he will have Sano and his family put to death without waiting for the shoguns permission, then worry about the consequences later. And Sano has enemies of his own, as well as unexpected allies.

As the previously unimaginable death of the shogun seems ever more possible, Sano finds himself at the center of warring forces that threaten not only his own family but Japan itself. Riveting and richly imagined, with a magnificent sense of time and place, The Iris Fan is the triumphant conclusion to Laura Joh Rowlands brilliant series of thrillers set in feudal Japan.
