The Samurai is the story of what looks like a normal guy who is struck by tragedies. Many people he loves are killed and he swears revenge. His strong sense of morality and honesty pushes him to learn a Japanese Aikido art. This martial art gives self-control in body and mind. That allows him to become the best sniper mankind has ever seen. He is a real warrior with the courage of a hero. Thanks to his bravery, he will be able to kill the Hezbollah’s biggest terrorist. By getting revenge over his enemies, will he find peace and tranquility? The story brings up a real subject which is War and terrorist attacks. In this book we find bravery, honesty, passion and determination. It is a journey around the world: places well known for their long history of conflict, but also places in Europe, hit by terrorist attacks, in the last ten years. It is also a trip inside ourselves: a “Samurai does not need to be tough to prove his strength. Without this quality we are on the same level as animals. The true power of a warrior ‒ but also of every other human being ‒ is revealed”.
