THE MONKEY AND THE TIGER
Robert van Gulik
published by University of Chicago Press

*

The Monkey and The Tiger includes two detective stories, The Morning of the Monkey and The Night of the Tiger. In the first, a gibbon drops an emerald in the open gallery of Dee's official residence, leading the judge to discover a strangely mutilated body in the woods--and how it got there. In the second, Dee is traveling to the imperial capital to assume a new position when he is separated from his escort by a flood. Marooned in a large country house surrounded by fierce bandits, Dee confronts an apparition that helps him solve a mystery.
