Samurai Seikei and Judge Ooka, his foster-father, seek seven men who have seven maps on their backs in order to locate a cache of dangerous weapons before they fall into the wrong hands.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
"It is fortunate," Seikei said, "that you were visiting this province."

His foster father, Judge Ooka, gave a modest smile. The two of them were on horseback, riding slowly because the road here was so seldom used that it was strewn with loose stones and branches. "Fortunate for whom?" the judge asked.

Publisher Description:
When a man with a tattoo covering his back is found floating in the water at the rice ceremony, Seikei and Judge Ooka know it's a bad omen-but not how dangerous the mystery behind it is.

Soon, there are seven of these men with partial tattoos on their backs. All different, all seemingly unrelated- except for the tattoos, and the fact they keep turning up dead. It becomes apparent these men are not just carrying body art, but a treasure map - to what? And why is carrying this map so mortally dangerous? Seikei must find and assemble all seven tattoos to find the answer - and the path to a most terrifying destination.

Another sensational samurai mystery by the masters of the genre: Edgar Award-winning duo Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler.
