Fourteen-year-old Seikei becomes involved with a ninja who is a hired assassin, when he aids Judge Ooka, his mentor and adopted father, in solving the murder of a samurai. This fast-moving adventure is the third book in Hooblers' series about Seikei, which is set in 18th century Japan. It easily stands alone as a great story.  Black-eyed Susan Award nominee 2005-2006
