I. J. Parker's phenomenal Akitada mystery series has been gaining fans with each new novel. The latest, The Convict's Sword, is the most fully realized installment to date, weaving history, drama, mystery, romance, and adventure into a story of passion and redemption.

Lord Sugawara Akitada, the senior secretary in the Ministry of Justice, must find the mysterious killer of a man condemned to live in exile for a crime he did not commit. Meanwhile, Akitada's retainer, Tora, investigates the sudden death of a blind street singer, whose past life is a bigger mystery than anyone thought. Told in Parker's clever, vivid prose, The Convict's Sword is a must-read for those who love well-written mysteries in an exotic setting.

    " Her books are convoluted but this one was beyond the pale. Apart from that, I've never encountered an author who could turn her appealing main character into a detestable jerk six books into the series. Have to admit I may not want to spend time with this doofus again. "

    " Mystery set in ancient Japan. Interesting concept. Not sure how much of the cultural setting is correct, but it sounds authentic. "
