Seventeenth-century Tokyo is the setting for Rowland's first book in a murder mystery series featuring Sano Ichiro the Senior Police Commander in the district of Edo. Ichiro is a samurai whose academic background puts him at odds with most of his peers. When beautiful, wealthy Yukiko and low-born artist Noriyoshi are found drowned together in what seems to be a shinju, or ritual double suicide, everyone believes the cause was their forbidden love. Everyone, that is, but Sano Ichiro. Despite the official verdict and being warned off by his superiors, the shogun's Most Honourable Investigator of Events, Situations and People suspects this double death was not only a tragedy - it was murder. Risking his family's good name and his own life, Sano will search for the killer across every level of society, determined to find answers to a mystery no one else seems to want solved ...
In 1959, twenty-nine-year-old Berry Gordy, who had already given up on his dream to be a champion boxer, borrowed eight hundred dollars from his family and started a record company. A run-down bungalow sandwiched between a funeral home and a beauty shop in a poor Detroit neighborhood served as his headquarters. The building s entrance was adorned with a large sign that improbably boasted Hitsville U.S.A. The kitchen served as the control room, the garage became the two-track studio, the living room was reserved for bookkeeping, and sales were handled in the Shinju download epub dining room. Soon word spread that any youngster with a streak of talent should visit the only record label that Detroit had seen in years. The company s name was Motown. Peppa and George practise lots of important skills, such as tidying up, saying please and thank you, brushing their teeth and crossing the road safely in this fun activity book. Your child can join in too, with the reward chart on each page and stickers to congratulate them with on a job well done. There's even space to add your own challenge for whatever your child most needs help practising!
