again."--Allen J. Hubin, "New York Times Book Review"

pleasure . . . the discovery of a great detective story. For the
magistrate of Poo-yan belongs in that select group headed by Sherlock
Holmes."--Robert Kirsch, "Los Angeles Times"
Robert van Gulik (1910-67), a Dutch diplomat and an authority on Chinese
history and culture, drew his plots from the popular detective novels
