Four people torn between love and honor: Matsuo Okumo, born in Japan, raised in America, and hated in both lands; Hiroki Okumo, his brother, a modern samurai sworn to serve a secret cult and the almighty Emporor; Meiko Satsuma, the woman the both love and who betrays each in turn; and Frank Slater, the American who turned away when Matsuo needed him and who now struggles to repay this dept of honor.
Japanese mysticism and imperialism face off against American atomic science and patriotism as the two nations search for the ultimate weapon and total victory.

I just couldn't get into this book until about the last third. It was an ok read. I would like to have seen more time spent on the Black Winds since that was the name of the book.
