This year, however, the visit is disrupted by gruesome murder, a baffling disappearance and the theft of a priceless painting. The brilliant Kiyoshi Shimada arrives on the scene, but as he investigates the seemingly impossible events of that evening, death strikes again, and again… Can Shimada get to the truth before the killer gets to him? And can you solve the mystery of the Mill House Murders before he does?" --publishers' website.
