Publisher's Summary

Japan, 1704. In an elegant mansion a young woman named Tsuruhime lies on her deathbed. The death of the Shogun's daughter has immediate consequences on his regime. Faced with his own mortality and beset by troubles, he names as his heir Yoshisato, the seventeen-year-old son he only recently discovered was his. Until five months ago, Yoshisato was raised as the illegitimate son of Yanagisawa, the shogun's favorite advisor. Yanagisawa is also the longtime enemy of Sano Ichiro. When Sano learns that Tsuruhime's death may have been a murder, he sets off on a dangerous investigation as he struggles to keep his pregnant wife and his son safe. Instead, he and his family become the accused. And this time, they may not survive the day.

    "Not "Samari Fighting" book; Story of Man & Family"
    Where does The Shogun's Daughter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Story centers on one man's struggle to maintain his personal sense of duty and honor, in the midst of a struggle with those that would have him killed, for their own gain in power. His family's involvement is supportive in the general lay of the plot. There are some things introduced to are not solved, which means there should be an additional book coming, which I would read. :)
