In the shadow of Mt. Fuji, the oppressive Batsu government controls the rebuilding of the devastated country, bestowing boons on privileged citizens while leaving most to fend for themselves on the fringes. After a disastrous job ends with Batsu enforcers hunting him, reformed thief Roshike runs—right into the heart of their regime, the fortified Gaku complex, to take on an almost impossible task. And he just might stand a slim chance of success, if only he’ll accept some help. But first he has to decide who he can trust…
The trilogy continues with Book 2: Enemies of the Batsu and concludes with Book 3: Endurance of the Free.
(Miraibanashi Book 1 was previously published as Whispers of the Dead.)
(*This is clean adventure fiction featuring action, espionage, suspense, and intrigue. Science fiction that might best be called spiritual cyberpunk.)

He is a Christian who tries to walk the walk (and not talk much.)
