Usage examples of "sano".

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.

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

Intuition told Sano that a direct connection between Noriyoshi and the Niu clan must exist, that it provided the motive for the murders.
