Volume 6: Shinko the Kappa
Yamada Asaemon, the shogun’s fearsome executioner, has been the end of the road for countless criminals, but rarely has he been involved in a case so strange. A mysterious woman with a turtle-demon tattoo on her back and the ability to swim like no other is stealing weapons from men around Edo, bruising egos and stirring trouble. But when she steals a policeman’s jitte, all hell breaks loose, and hell is exactly what Asaemon is trained to deliver.
