In New York City, a chain of brutal murders begins....In Washington, a plot conceived at the highest levels of American government is at work to bring the economic colossus of Japan to its knees....
In Tokyo, a critical power struggle is nearing its final stages for control of the enigmatic Black Blade Society, an ostensibly political cabal whose motives may encompass far more than politics.
This is the dynamic setting for Black Blade, the latest triumph for internationally bestselling author Eric Lustbader. As chief of New York Special Homicide Task Force, Wolf Matheson possesses an uncanny ability to track down and capture murderers where all others have failed. Brought in to solve the murder of New York's best-known real estate tycoon, Wolf soon finds himself caught in a frightening spiral of betrayal, lust, and greed, a hall of mirrors where nothing is what it seems and no one can be trusted.
Wolf, son of a Wind River Shoshone and a Texas Ranger, soon discovers that murder is the least of the crimes that have been committed - treason, espionage, even, almost unthinkably, the quest for immortality, are all a prelude to an imminent global war. In a whole new arena - larger and more terrifying than any he has been in before - Wolf finds he must battle people possessed of a mind power so lethal it has remained hidden for centuries.
