A master ninja and a Portuguese priest investigate the murder of a
samurai in medieval Kyoto.
May 1564: When a samurai is brutally murdered in a Kyoto teahouse,
master ninja Hiro has no desire to get involved. But the beautiful
entertainer accused of the crime enlists the help of Father Mateo, the
Portuguese Jesuit Hiro is sworn to protect, leaving the master shinobi
with just three days to find the killer in order to save the girl and the
priest from execution. The investigation plunges Hiro and Father Mateo
into the dangerous waters of Kyoto's floating world, where they learn
that everyone from the elusive teahouse owner to the dead man's
dishonored brother has a motive to keep the samurai's death a mystery.
A rare murder weapon favored by ninja assassins, a female samurai
warrior, and a hidden affair leave Hiro with too many suspects and far
too little time. Worse, the ninja's investigation uncovers a host of
secrets that threaten not only Father Mateo and the teahouse, but the
very future of Japan.
