5.0 out of 5 stars THE SAMURAI'S WIFE

5.0 out of 5 stars THE SAMURAI'S WIFE, 10 Feb. 2008
the fourth historical mystery starring the Samurai Detective Sano, continues in the tradition of providing readers with entertaining novels.

However, what makes talented author Laura Joh Rowland's novel a jubilation for historical fans is the resplendent descriptions of Feudal Japan that makes the audience feel they are visiting the island in the late seventeenth century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book- and this series, 8 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Am working my way through the Sano Ichiro Mysteries. Lots of mystery, tension, scrapes to get out of, and a powerful evil enemy - all in Japanese costume and culture, Generally keeps up the pace, too. Would recommend.
