A long-lost treasure. A wartime massacre. A modern-day
When an elderly World War Two veteran shows up unannounced
at Brodie Security begging for protection, the staff thinks
he's just a paranoid old man. He offers up a story
connected to the war and to Chinese Triads operating in
present-day Tokyo, insisting that he and his few surviving
army buddies are in danger.
Fresh off his involvement in solving San Francisco's
Japantown murders, antiques dealer Jim Brodie had returned
to Tokyo for some R&R, and to hunt down a rare ink painting
by the legendary Japanese Zen master Sengai for one of his
clients â€” not to take on another case with his late
father's P.I. firm. But out of respect for the old soldier,
Brodie agrees to provide a security detail, thinking it'll
be an easy job and end when the man comes to his senses.
Instead, an unexpected, brutal murder rocks Brodie and his
crew, sending them deep into the realm of the Triads,
Chinese spies, kendo warriors, and an elusive group of
killers whose treachery spans centuries â€“ and who will stop
at nothing to complete their mission.
