"Yamada no Goji is a minor nobleman of ancient Japan who has lost everything--except a single purpose: keep a promise to the woman he loved. In order to fulfill his vow, all he has to do is fight a horde of demons and monsters, bargain with a few ghosts, outwit the sinister schemers of the emperor's court, find a way to defeat an assassin who cannot be seen, heard, or touched--and change the course of history. Fortunately, Yamada specializes in achieving the seemingly impossible, so he is sure in some way to succeed...if he doesn't drink himself into oblivion first"--P. [4] of cover.

Yamada Monogatari: To Break The Demon Gate is a novelization of characters introduced in a series of short stories collected in Yamada Monogatari: Demon hunter.
Set in ancient Japan before the rise of the Samurai and The fall of the Emperors into puppet figureheads, Yamada no Giro is an impoverished lord who works as a freelance ghostbuster for hire. Begun as Sam Spade with a sword, he quickly becomes more of a Sherlock Holmes who has to provide his own justice. Most of Yamada's cases are at root problems of greedy and ambitious people more than evil ghosts and spirit. He uses deduction, clues and informants--human and other to find the truth.
NOTE: This novel is developed from stories and themes developed in the first book, so I recommend reading that TO BREAK THE DEMON GATE be read first to avoid spoilers. If you nlike it, the stories in DEMON HUNTER let you read more about a very interesting detective.
