From the publisher:
"One Ø Wan, a young assassin in the pay of the secret society of the 9 Tigers, is currently on the road, off to finish her latest contract, the execution of a venerable 90 year old grandmother.
"At the end of a heroically fought duel between the two women, One Ø Wan gets the upper hand and wins.
"Before she dies, the old woman tells her something that stops One Ø Wan in her tracks: it was she who had ordered her own assassination and hired the top killer of the 9 Tigers - who is none other than her own grand-daughter!
"She asks One Ø Wan for one last favor, and once that is taken care of, her grand-daughter is free to go back to the 9 Tigers … that is, if she still wishes to."
