about this item

Three students from Eito University in Kyoto travel to a remote island populated with moai statues in order to find hidden treasure, but several murders occur before it can be located. Don't be fooled by the bland description. The locked room murder is brilliant and worthy of John Dickson Carr at his best, and the dying message and chain of deduction leading to the killer rival anything written by Ellery Queen. Neither Carr nor Queen ever combined both in one novel.This is an outstanding example of Japanese honkaku with an introduction by the maestro, Soji ShimadaLocked Room International publishes impossible crime novels by authors past and present.
