Guilt weighs down fourteen-year-old Kenji. He could have saved his family from the tsunami that decimated his seaside village in Japan if he hadn’t been gutless. Orphaned and ashamed, he moves to Tokyo to live with his estranged uncle, his last living relative. Amidst the glitter of the city, Kenji clings to the hope that his missing sister is alive.
Blond haired, tight clothed, and tattooed, his uncle is far from normal. Kenji soon discovers the shocking truth. His uncle is a Yakuza--a mobster with organized crime. When gang war breaks out, his uncle hides him in a sumo training center. As the lowest ranking wrestler, Kenji suffers a harsh regimented life.
Through brutal training, he grows stronger, but can he reclaim his power in time to save his uncle from the criminal underworld, determine what happened to his sister, and forgive himself for his family’s death?
