In each life the wheel of karma turns.
Asian scholar and martial artist Connor Burke, who continues to labor under the stern tutelage of the master warrior Yamashita Sensei, is drawn once again into a murder investigation when the police discover a link between the victim and a mysterious martial arts sensei named Kita Takanobu. Kita has created a powerful New Age synthesis of Tibetan mysticism and the lethal heritage of the samurai.
Along the way, Burke finds himself pulled into the strange orbit of the Tibetan Lama Changpa, a mystic and clairvoyant who sees the dark clouds drawing in around Kita but is helpless to prevent a tragedy. Burke follows a trail that ultimately leads to Kita's elite mountain temple, where he will face his most deadly challenge ever.
“John Donohue’s Deshi is another excellent tale of clashing cultures, an exquisitely flavored and nuanced mystery…Donohue’s story is also one of insight and reflection, written by an author who understands the dichotomy between East and West and uses that knowledge to flavor his already compelling prose.”—Chicago Sun-Times
