Kyoto—beautiful, tragic, and for Nao Murata—deadly.
2017 Rainbow Award honorable mention "A wonderful tale of lust, love, and the Japanese culture."
Nao Murata never anticipated stumbling upon a stranger on the brink of death would thrust back into a world he thought was in his past. Now, he’s back among the ranks of the Yakuza, fighting for both his life and his honor. Struggling against older members undermining him at every turn, Nao must navigate the dark and gritty criminal underworld discovering who he can trust, and who is hell-bent on betraying him.
Aki Hisona jumped to the top ranks of the syndicate when he gained favor with Nao, but it left animosity brewing among his would-be friends. When an assassination attempt disguised as a celebration leaves Aki with blood on his hands, he isn’t certain how Nao will react. Will he lose his rank, his life? Or worse…he might lose the chance to ever have Nao return his affection.
All the while, the Korean mafia are deadlier than ever. Having ruthlessly killed the Godfather of the Matsukawa syndicate once, they’re now determined to murder the newest in line. Nao may have survived them once. They won’t let him out of their sights again.
