Samurai Lord Inaba has been murdered in his sleep, while guards stood outside his room. When Judge Ooka and his foster son Seikei arrive to investigate, they find a bloodstained origami butterfly on the floor of the room. Who could have left it, and what is the meaning? The trail leads to mysterious shape-shifting ninjas, vengeful peasants, and a killer who will stop at nothing to keep Seikei from discovering his true identity. In this Edgar-award-winning audiobook, Seikei comes into his true inheritance by winning a pair of samurai swords.
