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.
