When the rain turns to snow, the caravan is forced to seek hospitality from the local lord while they wait for the storm to pass. The dead monk, Li Du soon learns, was a reclusive painter. According to the family, his bizarre suicide is not surprising, given his obsession with the demon world. But Li Du is convinced that all is not as it seems. Why did the caravan leader detour to this particular valley? Why does the lord's heir sleep in the barn like a servant? And who is the mysterious woman traveling through the mountain wilds?
Trapped in the snow, surrounded by secrets and an unexplained grief that haunts the manor, Li Du cannot distract himself from memories he's tried to leave behind. As he discovers irrefutable evidence of the painter's murder and pieces together the dark circumstances of his death, Li Du must face the reason he will not go home and, ultimately, the reason why he must.

another enjoyable murder mystery from Elsa Hart
I enjoyed this sequel and look forward to more. the narrator has a great voice and really helps with experience. the cultural experiences throughout the story are interesting and a good change from the stereotypical English murder mystery which prevails so much in this genre. I am also getting involved with the characters which leads me to hope for more.

A good solid mystery just a little too long
For people who like a good puzzle mystery this is a very good puzzle mystery. However I felt the story was a little too long to give it overall five stars. Also the near ration which is good could’ve been better. Overall it’s worth the money.
