Claws of the Cat: A Shinobi Mystery by Susan Spann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Those of you who love mystery and are fascinated by medieval Japanese Samurai culture will like this book. A Shinobi detailed to protect a Jesuit priest ends up becoming a detective. The juxtaposition of the cultures and the incorporation of shinobi training into the investigations is delightful. This is the first book in a series and a satisfying first effort.
