Official Summary: “When the top American diplomat in Tokyo, Bernard Mattson, is killed, he leaves more than a lifetime of successful Japan-American negotiations. He leaves a missing manuscript, boxes of research, a lost keynote speech and a tangled web of relations.
When his alluring daughter, Jamie, returns from America wanting answers, finding only threats, Detective Hiroshi Shimizu is dragged from the safe confines of his office into the street-level realities of Pacific Rim politics.
With help from ex-sumo wrestler Sakaguchi, Hiroshi searches for the killer from back alley bars to government offices, through anti-nuke protests to military conspiracies. When two more bodies turn up, Hiroshi must choose between desire and duty, violence or procedure, before the killer silences his next victim.” – Goodreads
Review: The alive fish being eaten was just ew. I never knew people ate it like that. Learning new things every time I read the Author’s books.
I was surprised by Hiroshi attitude, he was really affected by what happened to him in the first book. You don’t need to read the first in the series, the second works as a standalone. You do get snippets here and there, referencing the first book.
Overall I am really enjoying this series. Be interesting to see where the Author takes it.
