Summary

No longer under the protection of the president, the Project has gone private as an exclusive consulting service available to select clients. A powerful Japanese industrialist hires Elizabeth Harker and the Project team to find a famous sword lost in the aftermath of WWII.

It looks like a straightforward assignment. Then people start dying, and Harker's team is pulled into a web of murder and deception that began centuries before in feudal Japan. Why is the sword important enough to kill for? What secret does it hold?

Forced to defend themselves against a fanatical enemy, Nick and Selena follow a trail of blood to Japan. There they find themselves in a mythic confrontation that can only end in one way - death.

The Sword will keep you listening into the night.

Couldn’t stop listening!

I hope it’s only rumor that this is the last book in The Project Series! I feel like the characters—especially Nick and Selena—are old friends. It is rare to find a series, especially an action/mystery/adventure one, that has such strong, impressive female characters like Selena and Elizabeth. Jack de Golia does such a great job bringing all of Lukeman’s characters to life. I thoroughly enjoyed every book!

Alex hits it out of the park, again!

The Sword is another great action-adventure story from Alex Lukeman, and marks a transition from the Project Team to the Harker Group, an intelligence consulting firm.. Set in Japan (and the US) the story takes us through a non-stop ride involving Samurai, Yakuza, politicians and corrupt civil servants. I lived in Japan (Fusa) for a year, and Alex does a great job describing the country, culture and mysteries of that exotic land. The story also delves into the changing lives of the central characters, and their desire to leave all the danger behind. The Sword was a surprise, as Alex had previously announced he was suspending the series, but this book marks a great return and I sincerely hope this won't be the last we see of Nick, Selena, Ronnie, Lamont, and the rest of the team. Please, Alex, give us more!
