Book and jacket in excellent condition. The Return of the Master Assassin First Translation. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: The sublimely fatalistic Fujieda Baian, master assassin and acupuncturist, returns in four tales of murder and intrigue from the shogun's capital of Edo. Baian is an assassin with a conscience: He uses his needles to save the lives of the innocent and to seal the fate of the guilty. Assisted as always by the trusted Hikojiro, Baian is joined by a new accomplice, Kosugi, a young master swordsman down on his luck.
Spring Snow - Baian forgoes his usual fee to avenge a dying woman.
Rabbit Stew - An attempt on Baian's life leads to murder and intrigue.
Autumn Rain - When Kosugi is falsely accused of murder by scheming rivals, he escapes death and gets his revenge with Baian's help.
Bridge of Darkness - The brutal murder of a constable plunges Baian and his accomplices into a deadly game with the most powerful of the shogun's retainers.
The pace never slackens, and the deaths and double-crosses multiply as Baian and his two friends carve a bloody path through Edo's underworld. Shotaro Ikenami will delight, surprise, and entertain American readers with his unique brand of historical thrillers from Japan's samurai period.
