Hiram Kane is in Japan when a horrible storm damages the area where he’s staying. He joins the rescue team to try and help as many survivors as possible. The boss of the mob Yazuka is retiring but he is determined to get revenge on a centuries-old enemy. Kane knows that the honor of a Samurai is something to fight for, but as his life is put in increasing amounts of danger, he wonders if it is worth dying for.
I love these Hiram Kane adventures, as they always draw me in and keep me on the edge of my seat until I am done reading it. I also love the different settings of each novel as they take place throughout the world. There’s nothing better to me than reading a mystery that takes place outside of the US and is also based on that place’s culture and/or history.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an action-packed mystery novel taking place in a setting of beautiful Japan.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5
