Hinata Shouyou is a poor medicine peddler. Broke, starving, and desperate for money to keep him and his sister alive, Hinata accepts the offer of a rich noble in Edo, the capital of Japan, who is willing to pay him handsomely for the rare mountain herbs and plants that Hinata collects—a job that Hinata just can't deny. However, on his journey to Edo, Hinata becomes entangled in a plot that involves the power hungry nobles of the capital, who have their sights set on the Shogun's throne and Hinata meets a few individuals who are willing to do everything in his power to make sure he gets to the capital at all costs.

Replaced him. Outdone him. Killed him. Usurped him. Became him. The rest is infamy. The streets of Johannesburg - it’s grave.
