The Gangster’s Son – A Shig Sato Mystery (Book 1) – Joseph Mark Brewer
Tokyo police Inspector Shig Sato is back among friends as he returns to Azabu Police Station for his last month with the department. On his first night back he investigates the murder of a beautiful young jazz club waitress. Her boyfriend, an American Marine, is missing, and the club owner is nowhere to be found. Sato knows that if the American has anything to do with the crime it might ignite a political and diplomatic firestorm. While Sato works to make sure he gets the right suspect, he learns that the club owner is the son of prominent yakuza boss Ses Fujimori, Sato’s childhood friend. Ties between the families go back generations, and Sato is in debt to Fujimori for help in solving a case many years before, a secret he has closely guarded. Now Sato faces the the biggest crisis of his career – will maintaining his family honor keep him from bringing a killer to justice?
“This suspenseful but also poignant mixture is far from a run-of-the-mill thriller but a compelling story with multi-layered characters. Congratulations, Mr. Brewer, I feel a new twang of jealousy coming up….” Bob Van Laerhoven, author of ‘Baudelaire’s Revenge,’ a USA Best Book Awards winner
‘Can’t wait till the next adventure with Shig Sato.’ – Dave Adair, author of ‘Random Lucidity’
