Description

But Kindaichi has not come merely as a messenger—with his last words, the dying man warned that his three step-sisters’ lives would now be in danger.

Gokumonto, or The Prison Gate Isle/The Hell Gate Isle/Inferno Island, is widely considered as Seishi Yokomizo's best work. Due to the danger involved in the fishing trade, citizens of the island are extremely religious, bestowing the priest with a tremendous amount of power.Detective Kosuke Kindaichi arrives on the remote Gokumon Island bearing tragic news - the son of one of the island's most important families has died, on a troop transport ship bringing him back home after the Second World War.

As he works out the relationships of the families, the townspeople, local traditions, it happens that his sleuthing skills will be needed. The fictional Gokumon Island or Gokumon-to, translating to ‘Hell’s Gate Island’ is a small island in the Seto inland sea, and was inhabited first by pirates and then convicts, making its people descendants of both, and very different from those on mainland—a closed community of fisherfolk, that looks suspiciously at outsiders and whose ways and lives are very different.Either they were ditzy airheads who go gaga over a handsome guy or they are beautiful but odd/crazy/hysterical.
