Communist Central Committee are trying to kill him and destroy the tanker for political reasons of their own Nicholas, even at his advanced age, reverts to the ninja training of his youth to protect his cargo and survive a team of Chinese assassins How he manages those objectives reminded me what an outstanding thriller series this was Hopefully, Eric Van Lustbader will consider bringing Nicholas Linnear back in a full length book format or better yet, reconstitute the series The minute I started reading this piece, I was in love Eric Von Lustbader references Sun Tsu s The Art of War, but it is Eric who is truly the master of the Art of the Written Word And in my infatuation of his craft, I couldn t get enough of Nicholas Linnear Let me express my dismay when I finished what I believed was the first chapter, only to discover that the story had abruptly ended What a teaser, I thought Surely there must bePerhaps I only downloaded an excerpt Alas, this brie The minute I started reading

must bePerhaps I only downloaded an excerpt Alas, this brief encounter was too soon over My appetite whetted, but no dessert Hell, there wasn t even a main course, just some hors d oeuvres But all is not lost, Nicholas Linnear actually has appeared in six other stories, in truly complete novels Lustbader was simply reminding us of their existence I recommend that he give this short, short story away to his readers gratis That will either introduce readers to this character, peaking their interest to download or purchase the entire cycle, or remind them of stories past so they can revisit the previously out of mind adventures of this protagonist.Or, Eric Von Lustbader can finish the book we felt we had only begun to read.Simply put, The Death and Life of Nicholas Linnear by Eric Von Lustbader begins with Nicholas wearing a tuxedo, buried in a cheap coffin, and left for dead And dead he will be if he can t escape this trap Obviously he does, since the title alludes to his life after this almost death The rest of the time, we are subjected to a fastly paced plot as Nicholas attempts to discover the whys and wherefores of this murder attempt Let me just say that bodies fly throughout as we witness the finess and style of a Ninja Master I will stop there as anydiscussion will ruin the experience.Since this review has taken metime to write then this selection took to read, I only give it four stars Four stars for a tease of a download Call it the revenge of a woman scorned.I wish to thank Open Road Integrated Media and Netgalley for allowing me a free download in

achievement After taking over his family s company and quadrupling its size, he has gambled it all on a liquid natural gas trade with the Chinese, a deal worth untold billions Is that why he just woke up in a pinewood coffin In honor of the ebook publication of the original Nicholas Linnear novels The Ninja, The Miko, and White Ninja Eric Van Lustbader returns to the series for a new heart stopping adventure Drugged to the brink of death, Linnear reemerges in a desperate attempt to save his business and find the people who tried to bury him alive No time has passed for Nicholas Linnear The Ninja is as deadly as ever, and his blade is just as sharp.A brief, but utterly realistic, re entry that plunges you immediately back into the brutal world of Nicholas Linnear, as though you d never left it Nicholas remains an Outsider wherever he is, all thanks to his mixed heritage The Japanese barely tolerate him thanks to his father s legacy, the Chinese only use him for his prodigious business acumen, and the Americans only see his external appearance that signals his mixed heritage Yet all his challenges made Nicholas into the man he is in this short story lethal, sharp, a ninja to the very core.This mini story showcases the Nicholas that suffered to attain his dreams The action spikes as the story opens, and it never stops until the story s close He remains true to his character, and the arc of this story is impeccable It starts up, climbs a bit , plateaus for a short time, then climbs even higher before the climactic end It is almost as if Van Lustbader had an idea for a chapter in one of his other books, was unable to fit it in without spoiling the flow of any of those tales, so he molded it into a short story An excellent one at that It certainly reminded me why I so enjoyed The Ninja, and why I m anxious to get to his other books
