5.0 out of 5 stars Good read, 26 Oct 2013
This review is from: Leopard (Paperback)
Really enjoyed this book

Josef is the son of a Japanese man and an American woman and, when he injures his older brother in a freak accident (leaving him a quadraplegic) his father can't hide his disappointment - causing him to head to America where he too falls for a Western woman.

The death of his brother, from natural causes (just before Josef's planned wedding) sees him back in Japan and having a crisis of identity. And then he bends over the coffin and his medical side (he's a Dr) kicks into over drive when he realises his brother's head has been poorly reconstructed with papier maché.

And so he is pulled into a world of organised crime. And the Leopard.

Can't say that I've read a book that focusses on Japanese culture before and I'm not sure how accurate it is. But the stranglehold of the various criminal factions makes for uncomfortable reading.

But a cracking book.
