Yukio's two best friends are dead. Tormented and blackmailed by the Yakuza - the Japanese mafia - they have taken their own lives.

Yukio is a kendo champion and he knows all the stories of the samurai. Heartbroken and furious, he is determined to avenge the deaths of his beloved Hiroshi and Miko.

And so begins a deadly struggle between Yukio and the Yakuza, and between Yukio's capacity for love, and his thirst for revenge.

Shot through with the beauty of Tokyo in spring, this is an unforgettable and uncompromising read.

'Gregory Hughes, writer of the astoundingly good Unhooking The Moon, is back with a Kill Bill-esque tale full of darkness, revenge and love' Did You Ever Stop to Think. * Did You Ever Stop to Think *
'Savagely compelling ... It mimics the distancing stylistics of manga comics as well as suggesting the short-circuitry of the psychopath. It's rather brilliant' Guardian. * Guardian *
'a dark and gritty tale of love, revenge and deep personal anguish' We Love This Book. * We Love This Book *
