Usage examples of "nitta".

When Wisteria arrived and met Lord Mitsuyoshi in the next room, Nitta watched them through a hole in the partition.

Sano and a team of his detectives arrived to call on Nitta the next morning, a hard, brilliant blue sky arched over the castle.

Sano kept his manner deferential, because if Nitta proved not to be the murderer, he could become a formidable enemy.

There, Nitta performed the ritual of welcoming Sano and serving tea with an elaborate courtesy that conveyed his antipathy more clearly than could blatant insults.

That Nitta would expect him to believe this limited version of events, and never find out that there was more to the story, insulted his professional honor and goaded Sano to speak boldly.

However, Nitta had a reputation as one of the few honest men in a corrupt bureaucracy.

Sano, because Nitta had placed himself at the scene where the murder had occurred, at the crucial time.

But they found no sign of Lady Wisteria, nor any evidence to connect Treasury Minister Nitta to her or the murder.

Detectives Fukida and Marume and some troops, again rode to the pleasure quarter, this time in pursuit of the entertainer whom Treasury Minister Nitta had implicated in the murder.

Fujio was the killer and sought to incriminate Nitta the way Nitta had tried to incriminate him, Sano thought.

The last night I spent with Wisteria, she said Nitta has been stealing gold from the treasury.

But I think she blackmailed Nitta, and he killed her to keep her quiet.

When Nitta got there, he thought Mitsuyoshi was asleep, and he killed Wisteria.

Detective Marume had learned that Nitta was patron to many courtesans besides Wisteria.

Perhaps the unnamed lover from Hokkaido was just as possessive toward Wisteria and jealous of her clients as Nitta seemed.
