Japan, 1703. On a snowy night, forty-seven fiercely determined warriors murder the man at the centre of the scandal that turned them from samurai into masterless r No. nin two years before. Clearly this was an act of revenge - but why did they wait so long? And is there any reason they should not immediately be ordered to commit ritual suicide? Sano Ichir No., demoted from Chamberlain to his old post as Most Honourable Investigator of Events, Situations, and People, has mere days to solve the greatest mystery of samurai legend - while his own fortunes hang in the balance.
