By the author of the best-selling Musashi, this is the story of how one man transformed a nation through the force of his will and the depth of his humanity. Taiko combines the panoramic spectacle of a Kurosawa epic with a vivid evocation of feudal Japan.

In the tempestuous closing decades of the sixteenth century, the empire of Japan writhes in chaos as the shogunate crumbles and the rival warlords battle for supremacy. Warrior monks in their armed citadels block the road to the capital, and amid this devastation three men dream of uniting a nation...

"Taiko is simply too good to ignore…packed with action, intrigue and heartbreak." Detriot Free Press.

"A unique opportunity for Western readers to explore a time, a man, and the creation of modern Japan from a genuinely Japanese perspective." Washington Times.

"Something for everyone - history, romance, acts of great loyalty and treachery, monumental battle scenes…highly recommended." San Francisco Chronicle.
