Reviews

Praise for The Japanese Corpse "[Van de Wetering] has a genuine gift for characterization . . . The villains are the yakuza, Japan's Mafia, who of course have their own extralegal culture with its warriors, taboos, codes, and pretty girls. The author obviously knows the methods of his florid villains very well." --TIME "What atmosphere! Elegant! Satisfying!" --The Baltimore Sun "The ending is slambang!" --Library Journal
