The suspense master behind Robert Ludlum's(TM) Jason Bourne thrillers, Eric Van Lustbader brings a riveting epic adventure to an explosive conclusion, as Nicholas Linnear--the Ninja--takes on his most formidable enemy. After the apocalyptic destruction of Floating City, Linnear's sworn nemesis has fled the ruined Vietnamese blood empire to remount the assault that will solidify his ultimate power and destroy the Ninja. Mick Leonforte, an international corporate power broker and criminal czar, is preparing for a final confrontation on the battleground where business and warfare become one. With the help of seasoned NYPD detective Lew Croaker and the dazzlingly cunning Vesper Arkham, Linnear pursues his prey--placing Koei, the woman he loves above all else, in the vengeful path of Kshira--the terrible force that even the master who trained him in the mysteries of psychic warfare was powerless to escape.

Publishers Weekly, 1996-01-22 The sixth novel in Lustbader's Nicholas Linnear series, in which technology and big business become battlegrounds for Japanese and American mafias. (Mar.)
Publishers Weekly, 1995-05-22 Sex, violence and violent sex, plus lots of hokey Eastern mysticismĉin other words, typical Lustbader fareĉdominate the action in this sixth Nicholas Linnear novel, which brings to a close events begun in The Kaisho and continued in Floating City. Nicholas, half-British and half-Japanese, heads a computer firm on the verge of a mega-breakthrough that here is threatened by: a crazed Nietzsche-spouting American gangster who is Nicholas's doppelganger; the gangster's equally crazed, California-based brother, who's trying to take over the Eastern U.S. Mafia family run by a middle-aged suburban matron; an unholy mix of Japanese tycoons, pols and Yakuza; and a creepy, untrustworthy aide to Nicholas's ailing mentor. And then there's the order of nuns who fight evil in myriad ways, up to and including using their bodies in distinctly un-nunlike fashion. Fortunately, Nicholas has ``Tau-tau, the secret knowledge of ancient psycho-necromancers,'' useful in a pinch for moving guided missiles or supercharged motorcycles but prone to side effects that cause depressing blackouts without moving the plot at all. As usual, Lustbader's prose can be as corny as what it describes (``It was a daring and dangerous plan, but it was their only chance to bring Bad Clams down. Or it was going to get all of them dead''), but his fans and armchair ninjas won't be disappointed with this energetic entry in the series.
