Nicholai Hel, born in the ravages of World War I China to an aristocratic Russian mother and a mysterious German father, and raised in the spiritual gardens of a Japanese Go Master, survives the destruction of Hiroshima to emerge as the world s most artful lover and its most accomplished and highly paid assassin. Genius, mystic, master of language and culture, Hel s secret is his determination to attain a rare kind of personal excellence, a state of effortless perfection shibumi. Now living in an isolated mountain fortress with his magnificent Eurasian mistress, Hel faces his most sinister enemy, a super-monolith of espionage and monopoly. The battle lines are drawn: ruthless power and corruption on one side, and on the other, shibumi.
