Reviews

Fascinating. * James Cracknell, Daily Express * Gripping. * Catholic Herald * Hardcore * Jewish Chronicle * thrilling * Financial Times * Fascinating * Books Quarterly * Hugely fascinating... utterly authentic. * Literary Review * Gripping and absorbing ... A terrifying, deeply moral story that you cannot put down. -- Misha Glenny, author of McMafia. Sacred, ferocious, and businesslike, Adelstein describes the Japanese mafia like nobody else. -- Roberto Saviano, author of Gomorrah. Terrific. With gallows humour and a hard-boiled voice, Adelstein takes readers on a shadow journey throught the Japanese underworld and examines the twisted relationships of journalists, cops, gangsters. Expertly told and highly entertaining. -- George Pelecanos
