Life in modern Tokyo is a blast for Rei Shimura, a young Japanese-American woman who enjoys busy days as an antiques dealer and steamy nights with a devoted new boyfriend. But things come to a standstill when Rei overpays for a rare old chest of drawers for a wealthy client, the owner of a famous Zen temple in Kamakura. The exquisite tansu turns out to be a fake: the worst deal Rei has ever made. When the temple family turns on Rei -- and the con man who sold the tansu is murdered -- she realizes she's opened a Pandora's box of deception and murder. A young martial artist, an aspiring rock singer, and an elderly antiques mentor all become part of Rei's search for the killer through the shadows of an ancient culture. As her world begins to rapidly and inexplicably unravel, Rei realizes that it will take strength, wit, and a Zen attitude to survive.

I like the central character in this cozy mystery series. Rei Shimura is a Japanese American with a fledgling antiques business in Japan. She‘s impulsive, stubborn, knowledgeable, scrupulous and fiercely independent. Aside from her Scottish lawyer boyfriend, the rest are pretty much one-note characters. The plot is improbable but gripping. The Kamakura setting holds extra interest since I visited there last year. I‘ll pick up the next #audiobook.

In Japan, Buddhism was more of an old age passion than a New Age one.

#Audiowalking by this cannabis shop today, I decided to take a photo. Pets and cannabis? 🧐

Texreader Does that mean the pets have to be over 18? In dog/cat years? 🧐 2mo
Butterfinger 😂 2mo
Lindy @Texreader 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
julesG So I can bring my old sniffer dog, but the kids have to wait in the car? 😁 2mo
Lindy @julesG Apparently. Although the signage looks like it was lettered by a child. 🙃 2mo
