The Jade Princess is visiting London and is shadowed by constables to insure her safety. A constable is found mysteriously slain by the branch of a Kodama tree.

Holmes is sent to investigate the death because it could trigger an international incident if anything happened to the Princess.

What he discovers is a myth that has its roots in yesterday, but its reality in today!

Japanese lore, Sherlock, British detective, murder investigation

Different aspect of Sherlock, yet a thoroughly engaging short story. Of course the primary thrust is the murder investigation, but the insight into unfamiliar lore is a great bonus. The descriptions are excellent, and the characters engaging. Well worth reading!
Neil Reeves gives a solid performance as audio performer.
