Mikiko Ohara is shocked and overwhelmed with grief when she learns on her 20th birthday that her maternal grandmother committed suicide. Finding the American serviceman she holds responsible for her grandmother’s death wish becomes Mikiko’s sole mission in life. Tenacious research on her part reveals that the guilty man, her grandfather, is president of Barwick Bank & Trust in La Jolla, California. For seven years she rigorously prepares herself physically and intellectually for her trans-Pacific mission. This is the intriguing story of her revenge… and what happens after 27-year-old Mikiko comes face to face with Lance Barwick. She's made a personal pledge to her deceased grandmother and to herself that absolutely nothing will prevent her from executing her plan.
FYI: With reference to the front cover, the Japanese characters on the left mean tanto or short sword; on the right, revenge. The tanto has been used traditionally to commit seppuku, which is a form of ritual suicide by self-disembowelment. In the middle of the circle is Mt. Fuji, the highest and most famous mountain in Japan. It has become a symbol of that nation, the home of Mikiko Ohara and the final resting place of her beloved, deified grandmother.
