Eiko had a heart condition, so the news of her death wasn't totally unexpected. But the circumstances of her demise leave Tsuneo perplexed. How did it come about that his wife, who was shy and withdrawn, and only left their house twice a week to go to haiku meetings, ended up dead in a small shop in a quiet residential Tokyo neighborhood?
