"Fitzduane is being hunted by the Yaibo, a group of Japanese assassins under obligation to avenge the death of the Hangman (killed by Fitzduane in Games of the Hangman). The Yaibo are also tied to the highly visible (and very shady) Namaka Corporation, which has been implicated in a brutal Tokyo killing. After being attacked in Ireland, Fitzduane travels to Tokyo, where he gets caught up in a plot that touches the CIA and reaches back to the postwar occupation of Japan. The cast, main and secondary, are likable, hateable and memorable; his complex plot unfolds effortlessly, lit by successive action scenes that explode like a string of firecrackers. Fitzduane, a reluctant but formidable warrior, weathers every twist and turn like a modern Odysseus, desiring nothing more than to go home in peace." (Publishers Weekly)
