Mourning the death of his daughter, tormented by the past, Nicholas Linnear is certain of only one thing: he doesn’t want to kill again. Once the ultimate master of love and death, he is now 'shiro ninja' – white ninja – no longer able to summon the disciples and powers that enabled him to live a life of honour and truth amidst greed and corruption.
As he is stalked by doubts and fears – and by an enemy with unheard of mystical powers – a torrent of death is suddenly unleashed, sweeping Nicholas towards his own nemesis. Only by discovering the secret of a new, higher power – a power he believed to be mythic but now knows to be real – can Nicholas bring peace to the maelstrom that surrounds him.
'White Ninja' is a novel of shattering intensity and passion.
