Japan, 1703. On a snowy night, forty-seven warriors murder a man who stood at the center of the scandal that turned them from samurai into masterless ronin two years before. Clearly this was an act of revenge—but why did they wait so long? And is there any reason they should not immediately be ordered to commit ritual suicide? Sano Ichiro, demoted from Chamberlain to his old post as Most Honorable Investigator of Events, Situations, and People, has mere days to solve the greatest mystery of samurai legend—while his own fortunes hang in the balance.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Ramya | 2/5/2014

    " Bit too contrived compared to other books but suspenseful none-the-less. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by J. Alton | 1/23/2014

    " The dialog sounds too modern to be realistic. And I doubt that anyone who served an absolute ruler, in this case the Shogun of 18th Century Japan, would survive to be "suspected" of treason long enough to participate in the events covered of this book. Still, it is interesting enough to continue reading. "

    " Rip roaring adventure of samurai in old Japan. The 47 Ronin are fascinating, the mistress engaging, the political struggles unbelievable, the tale well told. "

    " I think this is the best book she has written. An absorbing take on the tale of the 47 Ronin who are revered in Japanese history. The ending of the booking is shocking as karma comes into play. It is a book that I coould not put down. "
