Review

"Kosuke Kindaichi, the scruffy investigating detective, bears more than a passing resemblance to Columbo who made his TV debut in 1971 — which, coincidentally, is when this amusing novel was first published in Japan."
--The Sunday Times Crime Club (UK)

"This taut mystery provides an original variation on The Hound of the Baskervilles… Kosuke Kindaichi, Yokomizo’s Columbo-like sleuth, arrives to sort through the tangled puzzle and provide a satisfying solution. Fans of gothic-tinged fair play will be enthralled"
-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
