9780007330980: The Kaisho

From Eric Van Lustbader, the suspense mastermind behind the smash bestsellers featuring Robert Ludlum's(TM) Jason Bourne, comes a blockbuster thriller of one man's debt of honor-- and his ultimate destiny. Years ago, Nicholas Linnear--the Ninja--made a promise to his father: If a man named Mikio Okami ever sought his help, he would respond without question, no matter the cost. Now the time has come to fulfill his pledge. Okami is the Kaisho-- the boss of bosses of the Yakuza, the Japanese underworld--and in his Venice headquarters, he realizes that he has been marked for death. But the identity of the assassin and the inexorable compulsion that drives him are shrouded in mysticism and madness. Honor bound to protect Okami, Linnear is prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice: a descent into a chasm of knowledge so potent, of dangers so unfathomable, that even if he survives, he will emerge changed forever.

From the Back Cover:

Years ago, Nicholas Linnear promised that if ever Mikio Okami asked for help, he would give it. Now, With a summons to the beautiful, enigmatic city of Venice, the time has come. What Nicholas does not know is that Okami is the Kaisho, the boss of bosses of the Yakuza, the Japanese underworld.

In America, Mafia godfather Dominic Goldoni is killed in a bizarre, ritualistic fashion. Lew Croaker, ex-cop and Linnear's best friend, is persuaded out of retirement to follow a mysterious trail into something altogether darker and deeper than a gang war…

'The Kaisho' is a brilliant excursion into adventure and romance, intrigue and sex, providing a feast of insights into the mysteries of the oriental mind.

"A fast-moving thriller that combines the trademark Lustbader ingredients…a twisted web of intrigue, violence, double cross and his own brand of oriental esotericism. Here again he proves himself a master storyteller"
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"Lustbader returns stronger than ever…rich backgrounds…high-tension martial-arts battles"
KIRKUS REVIEWS
