When will my order arrive?

Jack is hired to find a legendary Japanese sword, a katana stolen from the Hiroshima Peace Museum and brought to New York City. To get it back, he maneuvers his rivals for possession of the sword--the members of a weird Japanese cult, a young Japanese businessman and his three Yakuza bodyguards, and Kicker Cult leader Hank Thompson--into a bloody melee from which Jack plans to waltz away with the fabled artifact. Also in the mix is a pregnant teenager whose unborn child, loaded with abnormal DNA, will be a decisive force in the cosmic shadow war raging behind the scenes. A pawn in the game, she is hunted by both sides. Of course, when things don't go as planned, Jack must improvise (and he hates to improvise).

More violent and complex than its predecessors, ["By the Sword"] serves up the occult thrills fans of Wilson's series have come to expect and tantalizes with the promise of more surprises to come.
