This is book number 8 in the New Lone Wolf and Cub series.

The last of the Kurokuwa ninja--all but wiped out by Ōgami Ittō, the late Lone Wolf--has seen through Mamiya Rinzo's conspiracy to control the shogun with potent drugs. But when she tries to stop the plot, she finds herself being used as a pawn in Rinzo's final assault on rogue swordsman Togo Shigekata, Togo's young "cub" Daigoro--and on his own renegade daughter!

Kazuo Koike's Lone Wolf and Cub is an acclaimed masterpiece of graphic fiction, and New Lone Wolf and Cub is the long-awaited sequel to this groundbreaking manga. Illustrated by Hideki Mori and translated by Dana Lewis.
Kazuo Koike is a prolific Japanese manga writer, novelist and entrepreneur. Early in Koike's career, he studied under Golgo 13 creator Takao Saito and served as a writer on the series. Koike, along with artist Goseki Kojima, made the manga Kozure Okami (Lone Wolf and Cub), and Koike also contributed to the scripts for the 1970s film adaptations of the series, which starred famous Japanese actor Tomisaburo Wakayama. Koike and Kojima became known as the "Golden Duo" because of the success of Lone Wolf and Cub. Another series written by Koike, Crying Freeman, which was illustrated by Ryoichi Ikegami, was adapted into a 1995 live-action film by French director Christophe Gans. The author lives in Tokyo, Japan.
