Description

In the days of Judge Dee, in the intellectual life of Ancient China, the deep study and practice of poetry dominated; scholars and students were devoted to the lofty ideals of beauty and art. If one wanted to pursue a career in public service, they had to succeed in literary competitions. However, behind all this, there were less noble passions that could even lead to crime.

During a Mid-Autumn Festival, Judge Dee is hosted in Chin-hua along with a small company of distinguished scholars; an academic, a court poet, an anti-Confucian and anti-Buddhist Zen monk, who excels in calligraphy. Unfortunately, there is not enough time for Judge Dee to engage in poetry criticism or calligraphy. A student is found murdered; a beautiful poetess is accused of whipping her servant to death; and in the mysterious darkness of the Temple of the Black Fox, where the reader is immersed in Chinese traditions about the magic of the fox and reincarnation, other enigmas seem to lurk.

"The Eastern mystery as composed by Robert van Gulik; pleasant like a cup of jasmine-scented tea."

In China, a genre of detective literature flourished from the 13th century. In 1949, van Gulik translated three 18th-century stories featuring Judge Dee, and later wrote his own stories with this hero. Judge Dee was a historical figure. He lived from 630 to 700 AD and was a brilliant detective and famous man of the Tang dynasty. Nevertheless, the adventures described in this novel are entirely fictional.

Dutch author Robert van Gulik was a famous sinologist who lived for many years in China. He was interested in Chinese history, calligraphy, and wrote a classic study on "Erotic Life in Ancient China" (1961).

The edition is adorned with 8 illustrations by the author in the Chinese style.

    Judge Dee, for those who enjoy detective novels, is a guarantee. For me, Van Gulik's books are superior to Agatha Christie's
