Fukuoka, Japan. An ancient map holds the secrets to over 200 traditional crafts in Japan. True to its namesake, a hidden, yet omniscient organization called "Fukuro" guards the crafts' mystery like vicious owls.

An ex-intelligence agent leaves her undisclosed African home to find peace in Japan. Her unique access to the world's information pointed her to the crafts map. She decides to search for it in hopes of carving out her own peace of mind.

Will she be able to overcome the dutiful, yet overwhelming force of the Fukuro in her search for Japanese crafts and peace?

Joel Van Loon
A thrilling and otherworldly quest amongst the art and artisans in Japan

I've been reading Brandon's emails for a while, and finally grabbed one of his books.
I'm glad I did.
I was impressed with his attention to details and the main character development.
I could feel that Brandons experiences traveling around Japan, interviewing masters of craft - the Shokunin -really led his writing.
The narrative flowed smoothly, the characters introduced along the way were interesting and quirky, and the emotional and physical intensity ratcheted up as the story developed.
Overall a great read.
Looking forward to further books in this series.
