Trevanian's Shibumi was a landmark bestseller, one of the classic international bestselling thrillers of the twentieth century. Now, chosen by Trevanian's heirs, the hugely admired writer Don Winslow returns with an irresistible "prequel": Satori. It is the fall of 1951 and the Korean War is raging. Twenty-six-year-old Nicholai Hel has spent the last three years in solitary confinement at the hands of the Americans. Hel is a master of hodo korosu or "naked kill," and fluent in over six languages. Genius and mystic, he has honed extraordinary "proximity sense" -- an extra-awareness of the presence of danger -- and has the skills to be the world's most formidable assassin. The Americans need him. They offer Hel freedom in exchange for one small service: go to Beijing and kill the Soviet Union's Commissioner to China. It's almost certainly a suicide mission, but Hel accepts. Now he must survive violence, suspicion and betrayal while trying to achieve the ultimate goal of satori -- the possibility of true understanding and harmony with the world.

Satori is a Japanese word that means ‘awakening,’ the Buddhist equivalent of the beginning of the path to enlightenment. As the title of this book of poetry, it represents moments in the journey of human experience. A journey which, whether seen as meaningless or as filled with purpose, is nevertheless fascinating and tantalizingly invites us to explore its mysteries and contradictions. At one level, the poems express universal emotions and the well-known themes of ghazals -pain of loss or separation and the beauty of love in spite of that pain. However, these themes are sprinkled with philosophical musings, existential questions, cynical reflections, and some “aha!” and “oh-no!” perspectives. Of course, the words acquire meaning based only on the reader’s interpretation... an interpretation which often comes as a surprise to the writer. Most of the poems follow the ghazal form, with rhyming couplets and a refrain, with each line sharing the same meter. However, some are written in free verse. The dominant language is Urdu but is often supported and enriched with Hindi.
