The time is 699 A.D.; the place is Poo-yang. Here Judge Dee, imperial magistrate, must investigate two deaths: the collapse of a young drummer in the annual dragon-boat race and the murder of a woman in a deserted country estate. The mystery involves the cruel River Goddess, and the legendary Emperor's Pearl, as well as a wealthy merchant's lovely, mute, mad wife. "The title of this book and the book itself have much in common. Each is a jewel, a rare and precious find." - Atlanta Times

(Key Words: Fiction, Robert Van Gulik, China, Poo-yang, Murder Mysteries, Pearls).
