When I first was told about this book I thought WWII era I'm not sure this book is for me, but I was told before I read "By The Sword" a Repairman Jack Novel I needed to read this book for the back ground on the sword. When I downloaded it to my nook I was overwhelmed with the page count 1206, let me tell you. . . . this story kept me glued to my nook. The story developed through very different eyes of the four main characters which was a complete page turner. I couldn't put my nook down and didn't want it to end. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Jack fans or not read this book. Who isn't a RMJ fan??? Really?!

Black Wind is a stunning story of love, honor and betrayal set against the backdrop of World War II. F. Paul Wilson really brings the war to life in his detailed characters and settings. At the heart of the story are four characters. "Matsuo Okumo, born in Japan, raised in America, and hated in both lands; Hiroki Okumo, his brother, a modern samurai sworn to serve a secret cult and the almighty Emperor; Meiko Satsuma, the woman they both love; and Frank Slater, the American who turned away when Matsuo needed him, and who now struggles to repay his debt of honor." This love story is set amidst the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Doolittle's raid, the bombings of Tokyo and finally the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. This book is unforgettable! I loved every minute of it and really had a hard time putting it down. The characters come to life and seem so real that it's easy to lose yourself in these pages. Black Wind was an excellent read....one I can't wait to read again.

I 1st read this many years ago & started reading it again as I am rereading F Paul Wilson. Even if you have not read him before, or have only read his Repairman Jack, you really need to read this. The characters are unbelievable, you feel their anguish, their rage. A wonderful mix of fact, fiction &horror, as wellas great insight into another culture.

I read this book in 3 days. I couldn't put it down. Having watched Empire of the Sun with Christian Bale (Director: Steven Spielberg in 1987), it was so easy to picture much of the storyline that took place in Japan during World War II. A conspiracy theory threads its way through the story concerning America's responsibility involving the bombing at Pearl Harbor. A must read for all history buffs. This book is a perfect marriage of fiction & History. My son is a huge fan of F. Paul Wilson & recommended this book to me. Now I have to see what he has written that I can get on my NOOK!!
