Summary:

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

Genres:

  • Anonymous

    While the overall premise of this book is excellent and I generally liked the characters, I found the long diatribes about martial arts wearing. As we were listening to it driving across Nebraska, my husband remarked how tedious the whole thing was. Not one of his favorite reads in a long time.

  • Anonymous

    A murder mystery, suspense story, plus lots of comments on the interplay between teacher and student as the student transitions into a teacher in his own right (kind of like what would have happened to the karate kid if he had become middle aged and become a senior student of his technique). The mystery is interesting at first but conclusion becomes predictable as the story progresses....however what I found interesting was the way the storyteller gains insight of his actions and the ability to see actions in others even before they happen. You do not have to be a martial arts loyalist to like this novel. As an audiobook the narration was top notch. Even though the book is a part of a series you are not left in the dark.
