       Additional Information  
      Ken Tanaka is being flown to Japan to be interviewed on television about his role in solving a recent California murder case. As a Japanese-American, he is particularly excited about his first trip to Japan; as a recently unemployed "downsizing" victim, he's thrilled that the trip is free. His enjoyment, however, quickly gives way to confusion and fear when he finds himself wrapped up in a mystery surrounding his samurai sword. The sword, bought at a garage sale in California, turns out to be a rare seventeenth-century blade that is somehow connected to the Toyotomi clan. That the blade is potentially quite valuable is the good news. The bad news is that Ken is being tracked and threatened by two yakuza thugs for reasons not at all clear to him. Now, with the help of new friends and old, Ken must try to unravel both the mystery of the sword and the powerful forces trying to stop him from doing so, before it is too late.
