By The Sword

Sword-wielding gangster ‘Banzai Billy’ Boyle is an enigmatic gangland killer with his own demons who seeks solace in Japanese samurai culture. He is pursued by criminal intelligence analyst Grace Andrew, a former Royal Air Force intelligence officer who has her own tragic past, who struggles against the bureaucracy of Strathclyde Police and the unfolding network of criminal conspiracy she discovers. Her Intelligence Bureau boss, Detective Chief Inspector Sutherland, is an unsympathetic old-school cop, with suspicious ties to a criminal and political network including prospective MP ‘Big Jim’ McConnarty who has a ‘finger in every pie’ in the City of Glasgow. Grace follows a trail of bodies from the Southern Necropolis cemetery to the grim halls of Barlinnie and then onwards to Tokyo, the backstreets of Yokohama and the woodland shrines of Kamakura for a bloody confrontation with Banzai Billy Boyle
