The best book I ever red, mystery , frame, sexual tension and a good interpretation of Japanes culture.

I picked up this book in a used bookstore, having never read any of Marc Olden's books before. Was I glad I did! The opening scenes, which take place in feudal Japan as a bunch of ninjas prepare to storm a castle had me hooked instantly. I can't remember the last time I read a more electrifying opener. From there the novel whips forward into the present day, as a young boy and his absentee father learn to live together following the murder of his mother and stepfather. What makes this stand out from your run-of-the-mill thriller though is the emotional content. Olden portrays his characters with real depth and poignancy. I couldn't help but think of Eric Lustbader when I was reading it but it's worth noting that Marc Olden was writing martial arts thrillers long before Lustbader. All in all, highly recommended and I'm definitely gonna check out Olden's back catalogue, cos this guy can write!

I liked this book, I read when I was a teen, but I get the feeling that Marc Olden has something against Australians.

One of the henchmen, who is rude and lecherous, is Australian.

An air hostess, who goes out with a transvestite character and kills herself, is Australian.

Plus, in Gaijin, the heroine tells a group of Australian tourists to shut up.

What gives mate? Had a bad experience in Australia or what?

I'd give this book 3.5 stars. It contains some vivid and violent action scenes, a good dose of imaginative flair, an understanding of the Orient and martial arts (particularly kendo) and some colourful characters. You may enjoy this book if you have an interest in the Orient, martial arts or ninjas. While there are some colourful characters, I found very few of the characters in the book likeable. Furthermore, the writing was a bit sloppy in parts, the plot was not particularly strong and the book dabbled in the mystical a bit much for my taste. However, the story intrigued me enough to keep reading.
