Judge Chen thought shoring up a dam that was about to burst was his biggest concern. Flood, famine, refugees.
Then, a body was found in the river.
And another . . .
Someone had been using the river as a watery grave, all in the name of the search for something that existed in folklores and myths only.
Finding that someone might cost Judge Chen his job, his life, and the life of his trusted advisor.
More importantly, it could reveal a secret he’d been trying to keep ever since he became the magistrate of Taihe.
