Please join me in congratulating Lee Evie on the publication of A Song for Lonely Wolves, first in her new Joseon Detective Series! I had the pleasure of helping Lee design the cover. Here's the book description:
At the foot of a jagged mountain range, an isolated village lies in muddy snow. From her bed, a young noblewoman vanishes in the dead of night, and rumours of a fearsome ghost with no face echo in her wake.
Hardworking and dogged Dan Ji arrives in the long winding valley with her own ghosts. As a damo, a tea servant of the police force, she is overlooked and undervalued. Yet this case has gripped her heart, and she craves to prove her worth beyond simply cooking and cleaning for her superiors – she is determined to solve the mystery.
With only the officer in charge on her side – a hard young man with a bloody past and secrets of his own – Dan Ji must convince the local Magistrate and his provincial policemen to trust her judgment. Yet with mistrust brewing, the investigation slowly grinds to a halt. Until a frozen body is unearthed from the deep snows of the mountain range.
It is not within Dan Ji’s nature to leave a mystery unsolved, yet soon she discovers the fine threads of this investigation run much deeper than anyone has anticipated.
A dark historical mystery set in old Korea.
A Song for Lonely Wolves is available now in ebook and print editions on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Lee's website for her blog posts and podcasts about Korean history.
