Book V in the Jack Mason Adventures.
As the dark clouds of another war loom, Jack, Scarlet and Mr Doyle travel from grimy streets of London to neon-bright metropolis of Tokyo.
They're on a mission for the British government: to locate the Kusanagi sword, an ancient relic believed to have magical powers. If they can find the sword, the Emperor of Japan promises to keep the peace between his nation and the allies.
But in Tokyo, they soon discover that the Nazis are after the sword, too. And they will stop at nothing for world domination-putting the team's lives in terrible danger.
Darrell Pitt began his lifelong appreciation of Victorian literature when he read the Sherlock Holmes stories as a child, quickly moving on to H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. This early reading led to a love of comics, science fiction and all things geeky. Darrell is now married with one daughter, and he lives in Melbourne. The complete Jack Mason Adventures-The Firebird Mystery (a Notable Book in the 2015 CBCA awards), The Secret Abyss, The Broken Sun, The Monster Within and, finally, The Lost Sword-are available now.

Bonus points for being the first kids' book of its kind I've come across that gives mention to the suffragettes!' Books+Publishing on The Firebird Mystery.
