The Fires of the Gods

Author: 
I. J. Parker
Imperial Japan -- the Eleventh Century: Saguwara Akitada is taking heat.... mysterious fires are breaking out all over the capitol city; his wife, carrying their child, is not doing well... and his job has just been taken from him and passed to a political appointee.  Then, when he tries to talk with the nobleman who orchestrated his termination, the nobleman is terminated himself- in a most final way.
 
And Saguwara becomes an instant suspect.
 
Not good.
 
I. J. Parker has crafted a remarkable series.  The New York Times believes "You couldn't ask for a more gracious introduction to the exotic world of Imperial Japan than the stately historical novels of I. J. Parker." 
 
Start with the first: The Dragon Scroll.  That's my plan.  Then... let's compare notes!
