Autumn, 1565: When an actor's daughter is murdered on the
banks of Kyoto's Kamo River, master ninja Hiro Hattori and
Portuguese Jesuit Father Mateo are the victim's only hope
As political tensions rise in the wake of the shogun's
recent death, and rival warlords threaten war, the Kyoto
police forbid an investigation of the killing, to keep the
peace--but Hiro has a personal connection to the girl, and
must avenge her. The secret investigation leads Hiro and
Father Mateo deep into the exclusive world of Kyoto's
theater guilds, where they quickly learn that nothing, and
no one, is as it seems. With only a mysterious golden coin
to guide them, the investigators uncover a forbidden love
affair, a missing mask, and a dangerous link to corruption
within the Kyoto police department that leaves Hiro and
Father Mateo running for their lives.
