Review:

Set in 16th century Japan, Valley Of The Broken Cherry Trees presents an exciting episode in the lives of Zenta and Matsuzo, two honorable ronin (unemployed warriors). Seeking respite at a rural inn, they soon become engrossed in tracking down the person responsible for defacing local cherry trees. Their search quickly places them in the middle of court politics at odds with both of the warlords visiting the area. They embroil themselves in dangerous situations in their efforts to solve the mystery. Added to the suspenseful plot are a multitude of period-specific details that serve to strengthen the authenticity of the tale and display the art and poetry of Shogun Japan, as well as the devious political unrest and martial arts. -- Midwest Book Review
