JADE DRAGON MOUNTAIN, by Elsa Hart
The priest dies in his room: an old man, the magistrate declares, it is a natural death. Li Du is sure that it is anything but natural and finds poisoned tea. For all its seeming leisurely pace, this book is complex and quick-paced, chock full of history, politics, culture, and a variety of personable characters. This is a 5, and I sure hope Elsa Hart's got more coming.
