Content descriptions

General Note: Series numeration from NoveList.
Summary, etc.: "Formerly a Forbidden City librarian, Li Du was exiled by the emperor for associating with traitors and has been traveling solo in the five years since. Arriving in Dayan, on the Chinese-Tibetan border, in 1708, he registers as he is required to do with the local magistrate, who happens to be his cousin. When one of his cousin's guests, a Jesuit priest, is subsequently murdered, Li Du sees an opportunity to redeem himself, and investigates. Meanwhile, the city prepares to celebrate the solar eclipse that the emperor, who will be in attendance, has predicted. Combining a traditional mystery story with an atmospheric Chinese setting, this well-researched, leisurely paced debut novel will please fans of lush historical fiction as well as mysteries."--from NoveList.
