Description
The year: 1689. The place: Edo, Japan's feudal capital. An all-powerful shogun controls the state, surrounded by bitter machinations and political intrigues. A young samurai and ex-policeman, Sano tries valiantly to follow Bushido - the way of the warrior - in a society whose ancient, noble ways have been all but forgotten. Suddenly, one of those ancient ways reappears: bundori, the war trophy - a severed head, nailed to a plank, offered for public display. Another bundori appears, and then another. As the citizenry panics and the shogun fears for his political life, Detective Sano must risk everything he's learned as a samurai to bring the killer to justice.Will his attempts be foiled by the villainous Chamberlain Yanagisawa? Or will he succeed through the help of the beautiful and mysterious Aoi, a mystic trained in the ninja arts? As it becomes obvious that the killer is one of three powerful men, Sano must reconcile his noble legacy with his duty to the shogun. Will trapping the murderer lead to prestige and glory for Sano ... or to his forced ritual suicide?
