The Chinese Maze Murders
A Chinese Detective Story Suggested by Three Original Ancient Chinese PlotsPaperback - 1997
Poisoned plums, a cryptic scroll picture, passionate love letters, and a hidden murderer with a penchant for torturing and killing women lead Judge Dee to the heart of the Governor's garden maze and the answers to three interwoven mysteries. The Chinese Maze Murders represents Robert van Gulik's first venture into writing suspense novels after the success of Dee Gong An , his translation of an anonymous Chinese detective novel from the sixteenth century.
