The sudden crash landing of a rocket from the heavens has shattered the warring armies of Lords Noriyuki and Hikiji. His forces all but annihilated, Hikiji himself is taken-and when the ninja Chizu goes to investigate, she encounters bizarre beings constructing fearsome machines. Will the remaining samurai be enough to overcome the aliens’ unbelievably destructive weaponry?
Inspector Ishida makes his long-awaited return in this classic-style whodunit!
Ishida and the rabbit ronin are escorting a killer to trial when a storm forces them to take refuge at a roadside inn. The inn’s other guests include a court noble and his entourage, a paper merchant and his daughter, and a quiet samurai, all driven there by the rains. When one of them is murdered during the night, it’s up to Inspector Ishida and Usagi to solve the mystery.
