A totally thrilling and spellbinding novel,
This review is from: White Ninja (A Nicholas Linnear Novel) (Paperback)While Eric Lustbader has added a fantasy element to the Nicholas Linnear series, he has done so in a way that mixes fiction with the usual compelling historical insights.
White Ninja takes the Nicholas Linnear series into whole new depths as he is faced with a seemingly unstoppable enemy with mystical powers beyond the scope of Nicholas's training.
This takes place against the backdrop of a business plot including a corporate takeover and a new computer virus, that is somehow linked with the century old blood feud threatening to engulf Nicholas. To defeat an enemy beyond the scope of his power he must go back to the roots of his training in a spiritual journey deep into the Japanese mountains.
This is perhaps the most thrilling and shocking of all the Linnear novels, and perhaps the most imaginative. It also presents Nicholas Linnear in his most fallible form and features a startling insight into the human psyche.
A thrilling novel that is an absolute must not only for oriental culture buffs, but also to any lovers of the mystical thriller genre.
