Kage, by John Donohue

This is another mystery featuring Connor Burke. Burke is a professor whose real interest is his martial arts training under the mysterious Yamashita. The premise of Mr. Donohue's series is that Burke gets caught up solving mysteries that put him in peril which he survives using his martial arts training.

In this novel, Burke is hired to investigate the writings of a Tucson-based author who claims mystical sources with little in the way of citation. He blunders into a hornets' nest of gangs and police.

I liked the novel well enough but do not rank it as high as its predecessor, Sensei.
