Shinobi Pre-Release News: July 12, 2014

Release week for BLADE OF THE SAMURAI has arrived!

The newest Shinobi Mystery, Blade of the Samurai, releases this Tuesday, July 15, from Minotaur Books.

Library Journal says: “After her exciting historical mystery debut, Claws of the Cat, Spann proves she has the touch in her sophomore entry. The deceptively simple prose educates readers about 16th-century Japan, while the well-plotted story moves at ninja speed.”


I’ll be on Capitol Public Radio’s Insight with Beth Ruyak in the 9:00 hour on Monday, July 14. If you’re in the listening area, I hope you’ll tune in!
