"Lustbader has honed the brooding, goose-bumply sensation of sudden, violent death likely to burst out of the darkness at any moment into a unique art form."

Eric Lustbader is the bestselling author of 'Second Skin, 'The Kaisho, 'The Miko and 'White Ninja', all starring Nicholas Linnear. He graduated from Columbia University in 1969. He spent fifteen years in the music industry, including working for both Elektra and CBS Records, and writing for 'Cash Box' magazine. He has also been a teacher. He lives with his wife in Southampton, New York.From Publishers Weekly:
Nicholas Linnear, hero of The Ninja and The Miko , is back in another epic melodrama set in present-day Japan, this time concerning primal Japanese tanjian sorcery, troubled family histories, sex crimes, magic jewels, marital problems, the opium trade, brain tumors, an apocalyptic computer virus and sadistic blood murder; and featuring high-powered Washington politicians, a female detective for the Tokyo police, Red operatives, the Japanese mafia, and a brother-sister tag team of evil incarnate. Improbable as it may sound, the story (which begins with the endless complications bequeathed upon it by its two equally elaborate predecessors) is compelling, highly charged with action, adventure, and Lustbader's particularly anguished brand of sexual realism. The densely plotted story leads through the labyrinthine mysteries of the Orient, with sexual and spiritual mysteries unfolding enticingly (if predictably) at every turn. A distinctly good time for the unabashed thriller-reader, particularly those with a taste for the mystical, exotic and sexually kinky.
