FROM THE PUBLISHER - THE PHANTOM OF THE TEMPLE is a detective novel written by Robert van Gulik and set in Imperial China (roughly speaking the Tang Dynasty). It is a fiction based on the real character of Judge Dee (Ti Jen-chieh or Di Renjie), a magistrate and statesman of the Tang court, who lived roughly 630–700. The book features nine illustrations by the author and a map of the town of Lan-fang. Judge Dee, a magistrate in the fictional Lan-fang district has a problem: a mysterious phantom is haunting a Buddhist temple. In addition, some 20 bars of gold have gone missing, not to mention the merchant's beautiful daughter. When a body is discovered without a head, Judge Dee must quickly solve the case. Lan-fang was the setting for another Judge Dee novel, THE CHINESE MAZE MURDERS and two short stories from JUDGE DEE AT WORK. Bookseller Inventory # 22959
