Called away from the crisis by the shogun's orders to investigate a mysterious skeleton, Sano and his wife, Reiko, must confront dangerous, long-buried secrets.

The shogun gives Sano and Reiko just three days to find out--or risk losing not only their position at court but their families' lives as well.
