About the Book:

Bruce Legume has trained all his life to become the One True White Samurai, but when the day comes, he wins the title on a technicality. Disgraced, he leaves Japan to seek the family he has never known. Stephen Legume has trained all his life to become a lazy, womanizing scoundrel, and has won the title entirely on his own merits. Reunited under circumstances only found in fiction, Bruce accepts Stephen's offer to lead him to their long-lost (and incredibly rich) sister, who holds the secret of the riddle of the Four Who Were One. Of course, Bruce has neglected to mention the assassins on his trail, and Stephen has neglected to mention that he's an irredeemable jerk, but you can't choose family. Now the priests of the Howlin Temple are pledged to slay Bruce, half the husbands within miles are hunting for Stephen, and the amazonian Valleykyries are bent on world domination. It's going to be a bumpy ride for the boys--always assuming they don't kill each other first...
