Lots of good fun here! Sword and sorcery with a Samurai flavor in an alternate future earth---with occasional silliness to break up the 'blood and gore upon the floor.'
From back cover: TERROR IN TOKYO! Tokyo, Japan, the twenty-third century: a thriving metropolis powered by a blend of technology and magic. But some inhuman entity is murdering women in the Land of the Rising Sun, and Inspector Akiro Katayama, sorcerer agent in charge of crimes involving magic, has just one clue to work with--a dragon's scale.
Enlisting the aid of Japan's greatest wizard and a streetwise homicide detective, Katayama tries desperately to solve the case -- but he has no idea of the awesome power he is dealing with. The only ones who understand the threat are four people who have been chosen by an ancient spell to stop it... Wyrdrune, a bumbling young warlock; Kira, a beautiful cat burglar; Billy Slade, an English punk possessed by the spirit of Merlin; and the immortal Mordred, son of the legendary King Arthur. Only they know the identity of the beautiful necromancer behind the killings--but can they stop her before she unleashes the most deadly spell of all?
5th in the series. Tokyo, Japan, the 23 century, Is where this book leads our heroes to fight a deadly Necromancer and a dragon.

I've certainly read better. To bad I've bought this whole series. The broom character is dreadful and just gets worse. I suppose it is supposed to give some humor to the story but it's just a sorry piece of writing.
