The Tattoo Murder Case - Akimitsu Takagi, Deborah Boehm

"Oh," said the investigator, "that´s the neighbor, a Mrs. Kotaki, wife of a government employee. When she saw the severed head she fainted dead away. What can I say, she´s a woman."


My initial reaction:




Yep, slightly annoyed.


"I don´t know what it has to do being a woman," Daiyu responded in a serious tone of voice. "I think anyone might faint at such a ghoulish sight. I mean, if this weren´t our job, a few of us might be under a doctor´s care right about now."


Oh ... okay.
