Publisher's Summary

In I. J. Parker's latest mystery set in ancient Japan, a cold and hostile land pits Akitada against his deadliest foe yet.

I. J. Parker's engrossing historical novels bring 11th-century Japan to life in all its colorful, treacherous glory. As Black Arrow opens, Sugawara Akitada assumes his new post as provisional governor of Echigo, a frigid province in the far north, notorious for its hostility to outsiders. But the snow that threatens to completely isolate the region is the least of his problems - which include a local uprising, a series of brutal murders, and a mystery that's as old as the frozen hills and a lot more dangerous.

I. J. Parker's engrossing historical novels bring 11th-century Japan to life in all its colorful, treacherous glory. Superbly written and rich in period detail Black Arrow is another bravura performance from a master of the historical thriller.

not the historical book by Robet Louis Stevenson!

thought I bought the classic for my son to listen to. i didn't realize my mistake until he came to me wondering why I picked a book filled with prostitution and foul language. my mistake, and a sorry one it was!
