9780060765125: The Typhoon Lover

Rei Shimura is back -- in her most thrilling adventure yet. Award-winning author Sujata Massey delivers another gripping novel of suspense featuring the sly, sexy Rei -- antiques dealer and part-time sleuth who has gone anywhere that fortune and unruly passions have led her. The Typhoon Lover takes her on her biggest adventure yet: a perilous journey that only Rei, with her experience in antiques and her foothold in two countries, can handle.

After a party for her thirtieth birthday, Rei answers a mysterious invitation to a job interview. The task is to search for and authenticate an ancient Middle Eastern pitcher that disappeared from Iraq's national museum. The piece is believed to be in the hands of a wealthy Japanese collector, whose passion for beauty extends to Rei herself.

When a typhoon hits Tokyo, and Rei finds herself trapped along with the object of her investigation, she discovers that much more than the pitcher is at risk.

About the Author:

Sujata Massey was a reporter for the Baltimore Evening Sun and spent several years in Japan teaching English and studying Japanese. She is the author of The Salaryman's Wife, Zen Attitude, The Flower Master, The Floating Girl, The Bride's Kimono, The Samurai's Daughter, The Pearl Diver, and The Typhoon Lover. She lives in Minneapolis.

From Publishers Weekly:

In Agatha-winner Massey's winning eighth novel to feature Rei Shimura (after 2004's The Pearl Diver), State Department official Michael Hendricks recruits the Japanese-American antiques dealer, who's just turned 30 and is feeling ambivalent about still being single, to locate an ancient ibex ewer that disappeared from a Baghdad museum and is believed to be in the possession of Japanese collector Takeo Kayama, an ex-boyfriend of Rei's. After arriving in Japan just hours ahead of a typhoon that paralyzes the transportation system, Rei contacts her aunt Norie, a teacher at Takeo's flower arranging school, who reveals to her that Takeo's engaged to be married. Only Rei would think the typhoon a perfect cover for checking Takeo's summerhouse for the stolen ewer, and the outcome disastrously affects all concerned. Massey gleefully contrasts the young, bizarrely garbed generation, including Rei's own cousin and Takeo's fiancée, with traditional Japanese society. Rei winds up with a badly bruised heart, but the ending hints at intriguing future possibilities.
