Synopsis

Told with the beguiling mystery and historical authenticity that distinguish Dale Furutani's samurai trilogy, this second installment in the series brings us further into the heart of feudal Japan. The saga's hero is noble ronin Matsuyama Kaze, a warrior whose sense of honor is as keen as his deadly sword.

In Jade Palace Vendetta, Kaze continues the search to find his lord's missing child. This time out, Kaze is waylaid when he saves a helpless merchant from a vicious gang of killers and soon discovers that everything is not what it appears. He finds himself trapped in a web of deceit and violence, where a veneer of propriety hides great evil. Only Kaze's quick wit and martial skills can save him and keep him on his quest to find the kidnapped child.
