Baker & Taylor
In 1699 Japan, when their son is kidnapped by dangerous rivals jealous over his power and influence in the shogun's court, Sano Ichiro and his wife, Reiko, search desperately for their son, only to be trapped by Lord Matsumae, who has been driven mad by the murder of his mistress and is holding an entire province hostage until someone confesses. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave
Japan, 1699: On a moonlit night on the northern frontier island of Ezogashima, a woman is running through the forest when an arrow strikes her dead. Meanwhile, in the city of Edo, the young son of Sano Ichiro, the samurai detective who has risen to power in the shogun's court, vanishes during a moon-watching festival. When one of Sano's political rivals hints that the boy was kidnapped—and may be in Ezogashima—he and his wife, Reiko, begin a desperate journey to find their son…only to discover that the local ruler, Lord Matsumae, is holding the entire province hostage for another crime: The murder of his mistress. So Sano strikes a deal: He will solve the mistress's murder if Matsumae will free the hostages and return his son. Soon, however, Sano and Reiko find themselves caught up in a dangerous scheme that includes clan warfare, bitter jealousy, and murderous betrayal as they race to unravel the mystery of THE SNOW EMPRESS, from acclaimed author Laura Joh Rowland.
