9780142414668: Seven Paths to Death (Samurai Mysteries (Paperback))

The most exciting installment to the Edgar Award?winning samurai mystery series.

When a man with a tattoo covering his back is found floating in the water at a rice ceremony, Seikei and Judge Ooka know it?s a bad omen. Soon there are seven of these men with partial tattoos on their backs. All different, all dead, all seemingly unrelated?except for the tattoos. 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.

From Booklist:

Hot on the heels of A Samurai Never Fears Death (2007), this latest in the Samurai Mystery series, which is set in eighteenth-century Japan, reunites adversaries Seikei, adopted son of Judge Ooka, and ninja Kitsune as they separately race toward an unusual treasure. The kicker is that each piece of the treasure map is tattooed on the back of a different man. The moral ambiguity of the ending is a surprise, but like its predecessors, this is a successful historical mystery, chockablock with adventure (including a bit of mostly offstage violence) and cultural details. An afterword fills in facts. Grades 6-9. --Stephanie Zvirin
