Akitada and the Way of Justice (2011) I. J. Parker

Akitada and the Way of JusticeThis is a collection of eleven short stories featuring the 11th century Japanese “detective” (there wasn’t such a term at the time) Akitada, over the span of his career, from the first mystery he was involved in to one towards the end of his career.

I quite enjoyed this collection. All these stories are a fascinating glimpse into 11th century Japan, but it’s more than that, because the characters are well written and complex, especially Akitada.
