A centuries-old battle between ninja and samurai over a stolen sword... enter 'Rage Cage' Reeves Taught to fight by his war hero grandfather, Reeves comes home to find Grandpa Butch embroiled in a centuries-old battle over a treasured Japanese sword. Together they team up with Tara the hot-rodding ambulance driver and a secretive member of a samurai warrior brotherhood to take on a powerful clan of ninja and yakuza bent on sparking a third world war. From the heroics of the Devil's Brigade in World War II and the brutal underground fight scene of Tokyo to the American heartland, BLADE OF DISHONOR pits battle-hardened cage fighters against cunning shadow warriors in a thrilling adventure story that's part Kurosawa and part Tarantino ... with a ton of Pluck "The rush his writing supplies is addictive." -"CRIMINAL ELEMENT" "There's a reason so many brilliant writers cut their teeth on the pulps, and this book both honors that tradition and expands it. You want interwoven plots running parallel between WWII and Right Now? You want violence mixed with romance? You want sacrifice, courage, and honor? Truth-based fable? Or maybe you just want hardcore-clean writing delivered at warp speed. Look no further-it's all here." -"Andrew Vachss, author of Urban Renewal, Aftershock, and the Burke series" "This is what big-scale blockbuster movies aim for but so seldom achieve ... Over-the-top action grounded by real people you truly care about and want to root for." -"Wayne D. Dundee, author of the Joe Hannibal PI series" "Blade of Dishonor is a fast-paced ride loaded with great dialogue-a three part dynamo." -"Charlie Stella, author of ROUGH RIDERS"
