Synopsis: Undoubtedly the most unusual piece of bridge fiction ever published, Samurai Bridge takes the reader to a remote village in early 19th century Japan. At first, the characters may seem familiar - the heroic masterless samurai (a ronin), the evil town magistrate, the downtrodden peasants, the tea-house madam with a heart of gold, and so forth. But soon we realize that these people are different - they are all fanatical bridge players (somewhat surprising considering it's the 1800's in Japan). The story culminates with a climactic battle between the forces of good and evil take place at the card table. Yet add some sexy ghosts, a fearless warrior, a bunch of schemers who want to govern and it becomes a gripping story.
