Publisher's Summary

A young woman with a foothold in two cultures, Rei Shimura has gone wherever fortune and her unruly passions have led her throughout her chaotic 20s. Now, after the streamers for her 30th birthday celebration have been taken down, the Japanese-American antiques dealer and part-time sleuth finds herself with an assignment to find and authenticate an ancient Middle Eastern pitcher that disappeared from Iraq's national museum.
The piece is believed to be in the hands of a wealthy Japanese collector, whose passion for beauty extends to Rei herself. But when a devastating typhoon hits Tokyo, Rei is trapped with the object of her investigation - and with much, much more than the fate of an ancient pitcher at risk.

Rei at her finest

Years ago, I came across the first mystery of Sujata Massey (in book form) and loved it. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that her latest Rei Shimura mystery was available here. The narration was excellent - I kept track of the various characters without problem. There are several sub-stories to the main story which added to the richness of this mystery. What I particularly love about this series is the way Sujata Massey weaves in interesting details of Japanese history and culture.

Since I always listen to audiobooks while knitting, I spend long spells engrossed in books. Some books lend themselves to short bursts of listening, but this is not one of them.

I hope Rei returns as I am sure she will (fingers crossed).

Fun Sexy Spy

The Typhoon Lover is a thrilling adventure full of Japanese custom and heritage along with sexy adventurous fun. While the main character Rei is both alluring and morally aprehensable at times it is an interesting read with ups and downs twists and turns. Definately worth both time and money.

Beautiful, well-narrated and a great story!

I am very familiar with Sujata Massey's great books and so I didn't hesitate when this one came out on audible. I am more than happy with this recording because it is even more fun than reading the novel was!

The narrator has a beautiful voice and the accents, especially the japanese ones, are perfect. As an added bonus, now I know how to pronounce the japanese words and names. Highly recommended audiobook for all Rei fans and those that like a good gripping novel with a unique main character.
