The Best So Far
I've read all of I. J. Parker's Sugawara Akitada books, and this is by far the best. Though there is the requisite mystery, it's really more of a thriller, with self-doubting hero Akitada in more trouble than usual, and more desperate circumstances. I'm fond of Akitada because he's flawed: stubborn, insecure, clueless about women and given to moodiness. Just my kind of hero! The location and circumstances of the crime and the plot are fascinating, adding to my respect for Parker's research and ability to spin a good story.
