It's Tough to Keep Cool When the Heat Is On Japanese-American Rei Shimura finally has a life to be proud of in Tokyo: running her own antiques business and living with her Scottish lawyer boyfreind. But when Rei overpays for a beautiful chest of drawers, she's in for the worst deal of her life. The con man who sold her the Tansu is found dead, and like it or not Rei's opened a pandora's box of mystery, theft, and murder.Only Rei sees the Tansu as the key. It will take a quick wit, fast feet, and above all a Zen Attitude for Rei to discover what a young monk, a judo star, and an ancient scroll have in common, and why her own life hangs in the balance.Sujata Massey is an exciting new author published by HarperPaperbacks. Massey's first novel, The Salaryman's Wife, has just been nominated for the prestigious Anthony Award. Massey's second novel, Zen Attitude, also featuring Rei Shimura, a 27 year-old Japanese American English teaching living in Tokyo, will be out in June 1998.

3.0 Zen Attitude
"Hugh's apartment was its own world, a country to which I held a short-term visa. A place where I could stay, but never truly belong."The 2nd one in her series. I love the setting (Japan) and the mystery and story were great. The characters remain generally unlikeable and behave oddly.

Better than the first in the series, but the main character is still really annoying....
