First head to 11th c. Japan and enjoy RASHOMON GATE, first book in an extensive series featuring the detective from author I.J. Parker‘s Shamus-winning short story.  Sugawara Akitada, a clerk in the Ministry of Justice, is sent to investigate blackmail at the Imperial University.  He quickly encounters murder.  Well-plotted mystery, exotic landscape, and very fine writing.  (Free for Kindle, Kobo and Apple)
