Stonecutter, a magical sword forged by the gods with the power to cut through any stone, is loaned to a desert prince by Prince Mark of Tasavalta and is then promptly stolen under mysterious circumstances. A young doctor, Kasimir, feels bad because he was in the tent when the sword was taken and feels obligated to find the thief and retrieve the sword. He's in luck when he runs into a famous Magistrate, Wen Chang, who agrees to take on the investigation for the prince and takes Kasimir along for the ride. Twists abound as they follow the trail of the sword which keeps changing hands as various underground groups and individuals steal the sword from each other for their own reasons.
The most fun I got out of this book was trying to identify all of the mega inspector and his trusty companion cliches. Amusing, but not the best of Saberhagan's work.
I've never understood the generally low ratings for these books on Amazon. They certainly aren't Tolkien, but they have a solid premise and the stories are handled competently by Saberhagen.
