A Kiko Ochisan Adventure Thriller.
A few maimed bodies with strange marks are found on the outskirts of Tokyo. Kiko, a dismissed spy agent, is more concerned with her sword training than catching murderers, but when she learns that one of the victims is her former colleague, she is back in the game. She meets an enigmatic stranger who leads her on… Will he take her to the murderer’s lair? And will Kiko survive?
First I would like to say I appreciate not having the entire story told in the Blurb!
Kiko is a dismissed spy but she left on good terms. Now she is intent on learning to use and control her precious short sword. Her instructor only has one pupil and Kiko is intrigued by him. She is also looking into the death and mutilation of a former colleague whose death is very suspicious and when another death occurs with the same markings, she can’t help but jump back into the spy game.
This time she may be in way over her head as she discovers the hidden secrets of the Black Lotus Society.
This was a fast paced read that had me from the very first chapter. Kiko is a really good character and even though I haven’t read the previous ones I was able to get up to speed quickly and enjoyed the book quite a lot.
Now I’ll have to go back and read the first ones. Thank you Lina for this one!
