The fifth and final Jack Mason Adventure joins the imaginative, compelling series that started with The Firebird Mystery (a Notable Book, CBCA 2015 Awards).
As dark clouds of another war loom, Jack, Scarlet, and Mr. Doyle travel from the grimy streets of London to the neon-bright metropolis of Tokyo.
They're on a mission for the British government: to locate the Kusanagi sword, an ancient relic believed to have magical powers. If they can find the sword, the Emperor of Japan promises to keep the peace between his nation and the allies.
But in Tokyo, they soon discover that the Nazis are after the sword, too. And they will stop at nothing for world domination--putting the team in terrible danger.
Darrell Pitt began his lifelong appreciation of Victorian literature when he read the Sherlock Holmes stories as a child, quickly moving on to H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. He lives in Melbourne, Australia, with his family.
