“The Incense Game” by Laura Joh Rowland / Tuesday, February 26, 2013 / Reviewed by Clay Stafford

Today’s featured book is The Incense Game by Laura Joh Rowland.

“Here’s my numerical review: 16-15-1. It’s a lottery number you’ll win by. Sixteenth Century mystery. Treacherous politics. History. Culture. An earthquake bringing the city down upon them. Number 15 in Rowland’s Sano Ichiro mystery franchise. One of the best and most realistic historical mystery novels I’ve ever read, educating me in a world I knew nothing about. If you’ve never read a historical mystery, this is the one you should read.”
