The suspense master behind Robert Ludlum's(TM) Jason Bourne thrillers, Eric Van Lustbader brings a riveting epic adventure to an explosive conclusion, as Nicholas Linnear--the Ninja--takes on his most formidable enemy. After the apocalyptic destruction of Floating City, Linnear's sworn nemesis has fled the ruined Vietnamese blood empire to remount the assault that will solidify his ultimate power and destroy the Ninja. Mick Leonforte, an international corporate power broker and criminal czar, is preparing for a final confrontation on the battleground where business and warfare become one. With the help of seasoned NYPD detective Lew Croaker and the dazzlingly cunning Vesper Arkham, Linnear pursues his prey--placing Koei, the woman he loves above all else, in the vengeful path of Kshira--the terrible force that even the master who trained him in the mysteries of psychic warfare was powerless to escape.

The final part in the latest trilogy of novels in which Nicholas Linnear faces the Sicilian-American Mafia and the Japanese Yakuza in a fight to the death. Computers, sex, business, mysticism, martial arts, and explosive action scenes are all portrayed here.From the Back Cover:
Nicholas Linnear is threatened with the destruction of not just his business empire but his very soul. His investigation into the theft of his most advanced computer technology has led him and his friend Lew Croaker into a maze of terrifying connections between the Mafia, the Japanese Yakuza and the Government.
The trail leads Nicholas first to Vietnam, then back, eventually, to Japan. Here he must confront the legacy of his past.
Croaker, meanwhile, has become deeply embroiled in the workings of two organised crime families. With Johnny Leonforte, he could lose his life at any moment. With Margarite Goldoni, he has already lost his heart.
'Second Skin' takes Nicholas and Croaker on a vertiginous ride to salvation – or damnation. From Vietnam to Florida, from the immediate post-war years to the present day and just beyond, this is a tour de force of vibrant imagination, outstanding characterisation and great storytelling.
“No-one does it with more punch than Lustbader”
