Am I the only one who kills people? You, you don't use your swords. You kill people with your power, with your money. Sometimes you kill them on the pretext of working for their good. It's true they don't bleed. They are in the best of health, but all the same you've killed them. It's hard to say who is a greater sinner, you or me.

💡Poučna

The story is naturally entertaining, shining a light on the Japanese warrior attitude. Even though it isn't profound or unique, it is good fun and easy to follow, the characters go beyond simple murder mystery archetypes and all have unique and fun perspectives to offer on such a dire and dark topic. The short story does well thematically with the idea of morality and culture for this very reason, but still takes you on a hell of a fun ride through the Japanese landscape and ways of Bushido whilst not denouncing those ways nor applauding them necessarily. If you love Western murder mystery stories, are obsessed with Japan and the Samurai or just want a short fun book, read this.
