"Lin makes the tropes of golden age locked-room crime fiction feel fresh in this taut and ingenious whodunit?" Publishers Weekly Honkaku meets Grand Guignol amidst a string of grisly and horrifying murders. The floor plan of the manor, specially built for entrepreneur Jingfu Bai, traces the Chinese character for rain.

Now, a year later, Jingfu's brother has inherited the manor and decided to stay there for the summer with his daughter. She invites a number of friends and, sure enough, they start to get slaughtered one by one in impossible circumstances. --Amazon.
