Description: Matsuyama Kaze is a "ronin," a Japanese knight errant. Kaze must travel across Japan until he fulfills a promise made to his dying Lord and Lady -- to find their nine-year-old daughter. As this masterless samurai searches the countryside, he is caught up in a series of mysteries that test his strength and skills as well as his Confucian training.

Kaze stumbles upon a corpse shot with an arrow at the crossroads leading to a small town. He becomes embroiled with an unlikely -- and untrustworthy -- cast of characters, who are as colorful as they are crafty. Each has secrets to keep and axes to grind, and it will take all of Kaze's subtlety, stealth, and Samurai skills to unravel the mystery and unmask the killer.

Richly atmospheric, filled with historically accurate detail, Death at the Crossroads evokes the world of long-ago Japan and the often lonely life of an honor-bound warrior. It's a spellbinding, deeply satisfying mystery that will leave readers hungry for the next chapter in Matsuyama Kaze's journey of adventure.
