After the usual formal celebrations , meetings, a grand banquet held, seeing the leading citizens and taking over from his able predecessor Judge Feng, only one murder case active . Still that has been solved already, just the just decision, a death penalty punishment to be carried out ( cutting off his head). The Tang dynasty of China in the seventh century, demands lots of paperwork, ( the Chinese invented this useful material, in this ancient land hundreds of years before) everything in its proper procedural way, the Empire and Emperor demands it, Dee has many documents to read and write. The new magistrate spends the first night studying them, two big candles illuminating the crowded desk, in his private tribunal office, drinking many cups of hot tea, eating cake, hour after hour alone until past midnight. Nevertheless the careful judge feels somewhat uncomfortable, Wang Hsien-djoong an unwise student the imprisoned, suspected killer of his lover Pure Jade, the daughter of a poor butcher, on shabby Half Moon Street claims he's innocent, but they all say that ... A curious, vastly wealthy Buddhist Temple of Boundless Mercy has attractive many rumors, something doesn't seem proper, they the monks say that a statue of a goddess on the premise, will bring children to infertile married women visitors, the grateful couple sends an appropriate gift of value when a miracle occurs. The abbot Spiritual Virtue, tries to bribe the honest judge with six heavy bars of gold and silver when Dee begins investigating the nervous monks, his lieutenants feel uneasy. Another temple, this time a deserted Taoist religious structure with a demonic reputation, needs to be looked at thoroughly, Transcendental Wisdom. Some weird sounds at night are heard often, chilling screams, unnatural, inhuman voices, apparitions seen, ghostly, moving lights appearing ....the towns citizens are quite reasonably scared to enter the haunted building, even criminals. A rich merchant from Canton, Lin Fan, with a dubious background has been living in this provincial city for five years, why? An old woman gives the tired Judge Dee, aged manuscripts, written by her Mrs. Liang, of the brutal crimes committed by Lin but are they genuine... a blood feud between the Liang and Lin families, has continued for decades. The bright judge with the help of his friends, have much work to do cleaning up this "quiet city"...
