The Ninja - Eric Van Lustbader

This book is clearly Van Lustbader's best. Very atmospheric as he shows a killing by a mystery assailant of amazing skill.

Nicholas Linnear, a martial arts expert, and a ninja, no less, is minding his own business until this murder happens. He then meets a police detective, and starts to realise who the murderer may be.

This ties back into a childhood conflict of skill and jealousy.

4.5 out of 5
