Kage - The Shadow
A Connor Burke Martial Arts Thriller

By John Donohue


This is the fourth in the Conner Burke martial arts thriller series written by John Donohue. In many ways I like this book the best.

In this thriller, Conner Burke, a martial arts expert and professor of Asian Studies, inadvertently gets caught between boarder smugglers, deadly Mexican Cartels and the US authorities, Burke himself being marked for death.  The action both in New York and Arizona also pulls in others  -- his brother and his brother's former partner, both retired cops, his teacher, his girl friend as well boarder authorities and secret US operatives -- as Burke is pulled further into the whirlwind of conflict and death. The novel is a great read, exciting and full of action in a tightly scripted plot.

This is a great martial arts novel, but it is much more than a well written exciting, nail-biting thriller. It also takes you into the inner world of the martial arts by an expert who is intimately connected to the arts of the classical sword, as well as judo and karate. The story pulls you into a narrowing vortex of murder and intrigue, a world of ritual, honor and revenge in which the hero must test his training against the ultimate fear -death. The book is a great read. It also is a portal into the intimate mind set, concepts, and philosophy of classical martial arts.
