He joins the rescue mission as flash floods cause chaos, death and destruction. Yakuza boss Katashi Goto is retiring from the mob. Before he does, there is one more thing to achieve: revenge over a centuries old enemy. When their two very different worlds collide, Kane is forced to make a choice. He has always known honour is worth fighting for. When challenged by Katashi, he has to decide if it is also worth dying for. The Samurai Code is the first installment of the Hiram Kane adventure series

 The Samurai Code by Steven Moore

The Samurai CodeWhen others fled for their lives, Hiram Kane’s honor says he must stay to assist the victims of a typhoon that has pummeled Japan. Katashi Goto, Yakuza mob boss is retiring, but first he must avenge the honor stolen from his Samurai ancestors lost long ago.

An uninvited witness to a brutal ritual killing, Hiram finds himself face to face with a man who doesn’t flinch at ordering torture, or even murder. Can a mob boss really understand the concept of honor or has he corrupted the ancient code of the Samurai for his own advantage? Hiram is about to be challenged by his own sense of honor and it may cost him his life.

THE SAMURAI CODE is a fabulous introduction to Hiram Kane from author, Steven Moore. Sense the atmosphere of Japan, sense the importance of history, of ancestors and try to understand how a man can desire honor for his ancestors and still be a vulture in the contemporary world.
Quick, but very well written, Steven Moore has kept the tension high, while painting each scene with the care of an artist inviting us into another world.
