Abstract:

"The journey of vengeance in blood and honor continues. Under the itinerant thumb of Yagyu Retsudo, the Shogun's secret ninja warriors, the Kurokuwa clan, attempt to ensnare Ogami. Can the Lone Wolf break the chains? If so, there are many in line behind Yagyu waiting to challenge the masterful swordsman, such as a vengeful widow, numerous police, and the freezing cold of winter itself. Plus, read the story of Ogami's rise to the position of the Shogun's Officer of Death, feel the seething root of Retsudo Yagyu's bitterness against Ogami, and watch Ogami teach a proud thief about true honor and the wages of deception. Five action-packed chapters, including never-before-translated material, are included in the latest volume of this classic series."--Darkhorse.com.
