The Honjo

by Glenn Starkey

Overview
Greg Valdez had walked away from the dark side of the art world and stolen antiquities. No longer for hire as a professional thief, he was enjoying retirement with his family until the day men from Japan's National Police and the Agency for Cultural Affairs arrived on his doorstep wanting a national treasure returned. The Honjo Masamune, a priceless samurai sword is being held by the Tonsei-Kai, a notorious Yakuza clan. If Valdez will retrieve the sword, the Japanese government will give him information about where Kyla, his former daughter in law, may be found. She believes she is leaving for Japan to become an international model, but in reality, she's caught in a human trafficking ring and may never be seen again. But Valdez must have the help of his son, Daniel, if Kyla is to be rescued—and Valdez doesn't realize it will take a miracle to get the sword and save his own life. The pulse pounding sequel to SOLOMON'S MEN brings Valdez out of retirement and in search of THE HONJO.
Description
Greg Valdez walked away from stolen antiquities and the dark side of the art world years ago. No longer for hire as a professional thief, Valdez was enjoying retirement in the Texas Hill Country until the day Japan's National Police and the Agency for Cultural Affairs disrupted his life wanting a national treasure returned. The Honjo Masamune, an ancient, priceless sword is being held in the United States by the Tonsei-Kai, a notorious Yakuza clan. The Japanese government will make a trade with Valdez—the sword in exchange for information about Kyla, Valdez's former daughter in law. Kyla believes she is leaving for Japan to become an international model, but she's caught in a Tonsei-Kai human trafficking ring. If Valdez will retrieve the sword, he can have the information to find her. It's an offer he can't refuse. She may never be seen again. But Valdez will need his son's help to save her and doesn't realize it will take a miracle to retrieve the sword—and save his own life. The pulse pounding sequel to SOLOMON'S MEN brings Valdez out of retirement and in search of THE HONJO....
