Shidoshi: The Four Ways of the Corpse is a gripping and adventure-filled novel, one man reluctantly takes charge of an underground war that has been raging across international borders, between feudal factions for 300 years. By ending petty struggles his objective is to follow his teachers’ path to enlightenment and change the world. However, he must pit himself against old allies, and various secret societies in pursuit of a title that he never asked for, at the peril of his own family.
His current army is made up of men and women who have been trained in the secret knowledge from the warrior and mystical clans of old, including Sanford Two Bulls and Ramona Red Wolf.
