Editorial Reviews:

When a man with a tattoo covering his back is found floating in the water at the rice ceremony, Seikei and Judge Ooka know it’s a bad omen—but not how dangerous the mystery behind it is.

Soon, there are seven of these men with partial tattoos on their backs. All different, all seemingly unrelated— except for the tattoos, and the fact they keep turning up dead. 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.

Another sensational samurai mystery by the masters of the genre: Edgar Award–winning duo Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler.

Summary: another terrific samurai mystery
Comment: In the newest volume of this award-winning series of samurai mysteries for young people set in 18th century Japan, a young samurai named Seikei and his foster-father Judge Ooka are confronted with a strange series of murder victims, who seem to be unconnected except for the elaborate tattoos on their backs, which suggest puzzle pieces which form some kind of map. Seikei must find all seven tattoos in order to figure out who is responsible for the murders and where the map leads. This series is action-packed and full of interesting cultural and historical details about life in the samurai period. I would highly recommend these novels for older elementary school and middle school readers.
