When beautiful, wealthy Yukiko and low-born artist Noriyoshi are found drowned together in a shinju, or ritual double suicide, everyone believes the culprit was forbidden love. Everyone but newly appointed yoriki Sano Ichiro. Despite the official verdict and warnings from his superiors, the shogun's Most Honorable Investigator of Events, Situations, and People suspects the deaths weren't just a tragedy -- they were murder. Risking his family's good name and his own life, Sano will search for a killer across every level of society -- determined to find answers to a mystery no one wants solved. No one but Sano... As subtle and beautiful as the culture it evokes, Shinju vividly re-creates a world of ornate tearooms and guady pleasure-palaces, cloistered mountaintop convents and dealthy prisons. Part love story, part myster, Shinju is a tour that will dazzle and entertain all who enter its world. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Laura Joh Rowland's The Shogun's Daughter.

This volume, produced under the supervision and auspices of the World Health Organization, for the first time brings together information on epidemiological, clinical and preventive-intervention aspects regarding suicide that has global significance and applicability. After a detailed description of the epidemiology of suicide and suicidal behaviour on an international scale, a large part of the book is devoted to the 'how-to's' of developing and organizing suicide prevention programs and services in different national and cultural settings, both at the clinical as well as the community level. In addition, a wealth of practical information for health care workers and volunteers is provided on how to evaluate and deal with acute suicide risk. Examples of successfull preventive intervention programs and projects, both from developed as well as from developing countries are provided. Also legal and ethical problems involved in suicide prevention are discussed. Finally, both cultural and biological aspects of suicidal behaviour, as well as their clinical-practical relevance, are discussed. The volume is of relevance to health care professionals and paraprofessionals, lay volunteers and their organizations, health policy makers and all those involved or interested in suicide and its prevention.
