The Way of the Traitor is the third published work by Laura Joh Rowland and the third entry in the Sano Ichirō series. It was originally published on June 17th, 1997. It was preceded by Bundori and followed by The Concubine's Tattoo.

Official Synopsis Edit

"The year is 1690, and the place is Nagasaki—a city where superstition, politics, and greed reign supreme, and a corrupt government which fears foreign invasion like a plague rules with an iron fist. It is here that the mutilated body of Jan Spaen, a prominent Dutch trader and one of the few Westerners in Japan, washes ashore. Sano Ichiro, the shogun's Most Honorable Investigator, finds himself exiled to Nagasaki and immersed in a dangerous search for an elusive killer. Every clue lures him deeper into an investigation that could implicate powerful individuals and plunge Japan into war. Nothing is as it seems, and no one can be trusted. Spies lurk in every corner, waiting to accuse Sano of following the way of the traitor—a crime punishable by death. As East meets West with catastrophic consequences, Sano must find the murderer, for at stake is not only his samurai honor, but his very life." [1]
