From New York Times bestselling author Eric Lustbader, the suspense mastermind behind the smash bestsellers featuring Robert Ludlum’s™ Jason Bourne, comes a blockbuster thriller of one man’s debt of honor—and his ultimate destiny.

Years ago, Nicholas Linnear, a.k.a. “the Ninja,” made a promise to his father: If a man named Mikio Okami ever sought his help, he would respond without question, no matter the cost. Now the time has come to fulfill his pledge. Okami is the Kaisho—the boss of bosses of the Yakuza, the Japanese underworld—and in his Venice headquarters, he realizes that he has been marked for death. But the identity of the assassin and the inexorable compulsion that drives him are shrouded in mysticism and madness. Honor bound to protect Okami, Linnear is prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice: a descent into a chasm of knowledge so potent, of dangers so unfathomable, that even if he survives, he will emerge changed forever.

This was a great book in 1993 when it was published not 2015 as claimed by B & N. If you read it in 1993 then you don't need to buy the newly published Nook book. If you didn't read it years ago then buy the book.

Those who had read the first saga of Linnear (Ninja - Miko - White Ninja) will get this new one as good as the first. This novel is as complex as the last one (White Ninja). But don't expect the same level in the other two (Floating City - second skin). In this novel, we know three new enemies for Nicholas: Do Duc (a skilled martials artist from VietNam), Michael Laeonforte (don't be fooled: he's skilled too) and Rock (a crazy militar). But the story is not only of the confrontation between them and Nicholas; the confrontation of honor duties of family vs. the own believings of Nicholas, the involvement of a Mob family and a yakuza leader, and the environment in Venice, produce a complex trama that captures you from the beginning to the end. At last: read it or listen it. The novel is excellent.

I read this book as part of an Honors Geography application project. This book is about business, ninjas, and supernatural magic. The author's style of writing is to have multiple descriptive characters. I didn't really care for the style too much because at time it can be very difficult to keep up with the book. I learned a few things about Japan from reading this book. It showed me some of the cultural customs, as well as how business is operated in Japan. This subject of this book kept me enticed. There were some great parts to this book but there were just way too many characters that really hurt the story. As far as the words in the book go, this book was in my reading level, but this book is for people of a more mature level. If you like books that are very vivid and intricate than this is the book for you, if things that are overdone put you off, then you should pass on this book.
