Publisher Comments:

It is early spring, 1679, and the feudal Japanese capital, Edo, is beginning to blossom. But along its peaceful, misty streets evil lurks. With one stroke, the favored vassal of the ruling family is decapitated, his head taken for a bundori — a war trophy.
Sano Ichiro, the shogun's Most Honorable Investigator of Events, Situations, and People, is called to find the culprit. In a city where danger and deceit lie just below the lush surface, Sano must rely on his mind, his instincts, and his noble training in Bushido — the Way of the Warrior — to solve this case that could bring him glory...or everlasting shame. Set against a backdrop of sumptuous castles, tawdry pleasure districts, and serene temples, and filled with unforgettable, rich characters, Bundori is breathtaking entertainment.

Synopsis:

The year is 1689. The place is Edo, Japan's feudal capital. An all-powerful shogun controls the state, surrounded by bitter machinations and political intrigues. A young samurai and ex-policeman, Sano tries valiantly to follow "Bushido"--the way of a warrior--in a society whose ancient, noble ways have been all but forgotten. Suddenly, a "bundori" appears--a severed head, nailed to a plank, offered for public display. Another "bundori" appears, and then another. Detective Sano must risk everything he's learned as samurai to bring the killer to justice.

Synopsis:

In the second novel of the author's bestselling series set in medieval Japan, Edo, the favored of the ruling family, is decapitated--his head taken as a war trophy. Sano Ichiro, the shogun's Most Honorable Investigator of Events, Situations, and People, must find the culprit in a case that can bring him glory, or everlasting shame.
