The story-telling itself reminded me of Robert Ludlum, but it was written in a much simpler voice. The transitions were smooth and the characters were fascinating. The action scenes were awesome, too! I could just imagine this book being made into a movie. I would definitely watch it!Access-restricted-item true Addeddate 2021-09-22 15:11:11 Associated-names Cochran, Molly Boxid IA40240704 Camera Sony Alpha-A6300 (Control) Collection_set printdisabled External-identifier

I loved the supporting cast characters. All interesting, exotic and fun. There is some action, though it's mostly a crime-drama with a distinctly eastern influence. And, oh yes... THERE BE NINJA HERE! To be honest, this book is a welcomed break from all the romance novels I've been reading and reviewing. I don't know much about other reviewers, but personally, I would appreciate more action and suspense stories to read and review.The novel opens with bubbly Suzi and her husband preparing for their wedding. The characters were little more than cliches and when they are killed at the end of chapter one, I sadly hadn't invested anything in them to care. Suzi's brother's revenge therefore, carries little weight throughout the rest of the novel. The narrative continues to spiral into violent absurdities as the story progresses. Why the Yakuza would spend time, energy, and effort training a rich American boy to be a warrior confounds me and the story never really gives me a good reason. Lines such as "you had you your chance to go home, little boy" are straight out of any bad Hollywood gangster script. I'm not familiar with Japanese culture, but it seemed to me that the portrayals here were overly stereotypical. Geishas and ninjas? Really? Cochran and Murphy's ( Grandmaster ) new novel melds two plots, one taking place in Arthurian England, where the evil knight Saladin is trying to gain possession of the Holy Grail and make himself Continue reading »
