Jian is the Champion, the Man who Excels. His arts are martial and philosophic, terrifyingly physical, cruelly cerebral. Who is he? What are his aims?
Is he Jake Maroc: a man haunted by his past, threatened by his present, careless for his future – except to exact the vengeance which is his? Is he Nichiren, Jake’s deadly adversary, as skilled in the arts of survival and murder as Maroc himself?
