AN INEXPLICABLE MURDER, OLD WAR SECRETS, AND ASIAN GANGS COME TO THE SURFACE—AND JIM BRODIE IS ON THE RUN AGAIN.
Struggling San Francisco antiques dealer Jim Brodie is back in Japan. After wading through the tragedy of the Japantown murders, he and his daughter have returned for a well-earned vacation.
Checking in at the P.I. firm he inherited from his father, he’s startled by the arrival of an old World War II veteran and his son. The father has come explicitly to see Brodie, and offers up a dark story connected to the war and a pair of violent home invasions committed in the Japanese capital only days earlier.
Brodie takes a liking to the old soldier and agrees to provide protection, one of the services Brodie Security supplies. An unexpected murder soon shocks Brodie and his crew, and Brodie begins a wild ride through the worlds of kendo, the Triads, war atrocities, the backstreets of Yokohama’s unfathomable Chinatown, Chinese spies, and an elusive group of killers after a long-lost treasure with a murky and dangerous history.
With the crusty PI Noda at his side, Brodie pokes around where he’s not wanted, and when a friend is delivered up to him in pieces Brodie is once again running for his life—while seeking the answers he needs to save it.
