Description

The Monkey and The Tiger includes two detective stories, "The Morning of the Monkey" and "The Night of the Tiger." In the first, a gibbon drops an emerald in the open gallery of Dee's official residence, leading the judge to discover a strangely mutilated body in the woods—and how it got there. In the second, Dee is traveling to the imperial capital to assume a new position when he is separated from his escort by a flood. Marooned in a large country house surrounded by fierce bandits, Dee confronts an apparition that helps him solve a mystery.

The Morning of the Monkey

Judge Dee saw that the gibbon was watching him

'I am not yet through with you, Mr. Leng!'

'It's a very private matter,' Tao Gan said

'Well,' she said, 'I have done nothing wrong'

The Night of the Tiger

Judge Dee caught the spear on his sword

He pulled the silk strings in succession

Suddenly the judge had the feeling that he was not alone

'I grabbed her and shouted at her to stop...'
