Mystery & Suspense • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1973

Akira Matsumoto provides an exciting narration of this classic locked- room mystery. Translated into English for the first time, this first of 77 Detective Kindaichi volumes offers a fascinating glimpse of Japanese culture. In Okamura in 1937, the son of a great family and his bride are found brutally murdered in their locked room on the morning after their wedding. The bloody prints of a three-fingered man are found at the scene, but with no way in or out of the room, the mystery deepens. Matsumoto's Japanese pronunciations are flawless. He keeps the intensity high as both helpful clues and red herrings create a puzzle worthy of Kindaichi's agile mind. This Kindaichi mystery will leave listeners eager for more.
