London Times bestseller list: "A sweeping novel in the James Michener genre which will attract the same legions of readers who read James Clavell's SHOGUN. Clavell wrote how the Shogun came to power. Dov Silverman writes of the period 240 years later and THE FALL OF THE SHOGUN planned by THE BLACK DRAGON."
He solidifies Japan's political and military factions by threatening to cast the Emperor's symbols of divine authority (the jewel, sword and mirror) into the sea. This is a powerful saga of honor and intrigue, betrayal and courage - the story of Mung and his adopted brother's mission to lead Japan into the modern world.
The two young men harpoon whales, study at Harvard, learn about love in Hawaii, join the California Gold Rush, and bring the Henry rifle and Howitzer to bear on the Shogun's army in their attempt to save the Emperor.
