"I thought ruefully about about the Japanese belief that that there are no coincidences, that everything is part of a great cosmic plan."
An interesting mystery set in Japan - in small towns and in Tokyo. I loved the descriptions of the setting and the culture. The story was well done, but there were some funny inconcistencies with the characters that we distracting. It is the first in a series, so hopefully they get better as the author gets more experienced.
