Product Details


“Spann once more shows herself as a master storyteller . The narrative is swift and adept, and so well-grounded in ancient Japanese history and customs of the period that I was totally immersed. A nail-biting tale of ninja assassins and a man who must choose between honor and his family in feudal Japan.”
—CARA BLACK, New York Times–bestselling author of the Aimée Leduc Investigations

“Spann keeps getting better, as shown by her fifth novel set in 16th-century Japan, a taut closed-circle mystery with perilous consequences…. Fans of classic whodunits will be pleased.”
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY               

“Spann’s best novel ever! Here, my favorite shinobi detective, Hiro, returns home with the Portuguese priest Mateo, and the duo is thrust into a scene of murder at a feast. With unique and endearing characters, vivid scenes, and shocking twists, Betrayal at Iga is incredibly dynamic and riveting. Susan Spann has effortlessly crafted a tantalizing tale of murder, rivalry, and suspense. I highly recommend this book!”

—WEINA DAI RANDEL, author of The Moon in the Palace and The Empress of Bright Moon 

“Spann mixes history, suspense, and folklore to great effect in the new Hiro Hattori novel. I was swept back to sixteenth-century Japan; it was a great pleasure to read.”
—SUJATA MASSEY, author of The Widows of Malabar Hill

“Steeped in the lore of samurai culture and ninja stealth, The Ninja’s Daughter weaves a sophisticated tapestry of intrigue and murder. Compelling, exotic, and irresistible.”

—BARRY LANCET, award-winning author of Japantown and Pacific Burn
“Spann’s novels capture the vibrant intricacies of life and etiquette in feudal Japan…. Sure to fascinate both mystery and historical fiction lovers.”
