Silent Dragon #1. A story of love, betrayal, honor and war set against the backdrop of a not-so-distant future. Tokyo, A.D. 2063 Renjiro is chief advisor to Japan's most notorious gangster: the Yakuza warlord Hideaki. Under his guidance, the Black Dragon Clan has seized total control of Honshu's underworld, ruthlessly crushing any and all opposition. But Hideaki dreams of even greater glories -- namely, the overthrow of the government itself! Japan's hard-line military junta will do anything to stop him, even if it means civil war - and in Renjiro, they have found the ultimate pawn to set their plan in motion. Caught between a lifetime of honor and loyalty to his Yakuza clan and the iron-fisted might of the military elite, Renjiro will find that the only way to avoid total annihilation is to play both sides against the middle.
