From Library Journal:

It all begins because Lady Wu, favored consort of the Emperor, decides to pursue a hobby. Traitorous messages inside flowers delivered for arranging speak to her latent ambitions. She plans the assassination of the young prince; her own son rejects his new right to the throne; the Empress commits suicide; and the Emperor retreats into his grief. Lin Lin-fu, the unscrupulous chief minister and author of the flower messages, begins a masterfully executed reign of terror, impeded only by Kao Li-Shih, the Emperor's chief eunuch and best friend. The intricate tapestry of 8th-century China unfolds as slowly and artistically as a lotus blossom in this spellbinding novel with believable characters. Highly recommended for most public libraries.
