Veronica Perdomo | 2 comments This post is for my hubby. He read the first book in this series in roughly 1998, though it was not a new publication at the time.

Here's what he can remember: Story starts in post-apocalyptic USA. The protagonist is a gunman who dates a tall (mutant?) red-headed woman with super strength. They are members of a group gathered probably by chance and circumstance. One female member of the group is an Olympic archer. In their roaming, they discover teleportation platforms which transport them to Japan, where by a series of events the protagonist is set up to kill an important and influential samurai.

*****SPOILER ALERT?*********

The main character has a son, but not whom we meet in the first book. The main character uses a knife to kill the samurai.

This is pretty much all he can remember. Help, please!
