Hoong, I envy you that initial pleasure which comes form the discovery of a great detective story. For the magistrate of Poo-yang belongs in the select group of fictional detectives headed by the renowned Sherlock Holmes."--Robert Kirsch, Los Angeles Times Robert Van Gulik (1910-67) was a Dutch diplomat and an authority on Chinese history and culture. He drew his plots from the whole body of Chinese literature, especially from the popular detective novels that first appeared in the seventeenth century.
