About the Book

THE EMPEROR'S LAST MAN Unwilling to admit the war is over, a Japanese soldier, as did many others on war-ravaged islands, has gone into hiding, hoping for the triumphant return of the Imperial Forces. American soldiers did the same in the Philippines, and were eventually vindicated. The "Emperor's Last Man" is an English-speaking woman, RYOKO, originally pressed into service as an Interpreter/Interrogator. She is inadvertently flushed in her cave by FORD PAGE, a teen-age American with a sense of immortality, nosing about an Off-Limits, uncleansed minefield. Here the story begins.
