The Hell Screen

The Hell Screen

by I.J. Parker

The Hell Screen, set in eleventh century Japan, is the fifth novel in the series featuring government official Sugawara Akitada. Akitada, on his way to the bedside of his dying mother, spends the night in a temple whose great treasure is a brilliantly painted hell screen. Its violent imagery causes him to dream until he wakes to a scream that may have been part of the nightmare. Only after Akitada returns home to deal with his mother’s hatred and his sisters’ scandals does he realize that a woman was murdered while he slept and that he must find her killer to save his family.
