#BookReview – The Samurai Code: A Hiram Kane Adventure

This is a book review of The Samurai Code: A Hiram Kane adventure by Steven Moore, which I gave 5 stars to.

Published March 15th 2017 by Condor Publishing



One lethal storm. One deadly criminal. One ancient code.

Expedition leader Hiram Kane is in Japan when the storm of the century hits. He joins the rescue mission as flash floods cause chaos, death and destruction.

Yakuza boss Katashi Goto is retiring from the mob. Before he does, there is one more thing to achieve: revenge over a centuries old enemy.

When their two very different worlds collide, Kane is forced to make a choice. He has always known honour is worth fighting for. When challenged by Katashi, he has to decide if it is also worth dying for.

The Samurai Code is the first installment of the Hiram Kane adventure series. For fans of Russell Blake and Clive Cussler, Steven Moore’s breakout action thriller will leave you breathless.

My Review

I enjoyed this book a lot. The story follows harim kane on his adventures in Japan where he battles a storm before moving onto meeting a yakuza boss. it is a nice short read, but long enough to be full of action and adventure. I would recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next one in the series

The story starts off with a bang, when a tsunami hits the island where Hiram Kane is staying and instead of running away he stays and helps the victims.

After this he moves on and more trouble follows him.  He gets dragged into an ancient war of the Samurai when a direct descendant of a Samurai Warrior tries to reclaim his armour and a battle ensues.

Overall this is a brilliant book, which i can’t recommend highly enough.  I can’t wait to read the next in the series
