High Priest of California

A slow but interesting story line that leads to a disappointing end! Wish there was more!

Tokyo Zero

by Marc Horne

Fun read especially if you're into Japan and related topics. The author seems to have even spent a bit of time in Tokyo for research as he describes how the character reacts to certain situations. Definitely enjoyed the writing style, "what an incredible fucking suit and inside that suit was a man..." He did a good job in describing the areas of Tokyo, albeit with a few minor continuity issues, ie why would he leave the JR for the subway at Kanda to go to Shibuya to exit the JR Hachiko exit? Or the fact that Koiwa isn't really that ghetto, but to make Tokyo seedy you really need to employ dramatic license so it's understandable (I was ironically reading this as I passed through Koiwa, but i was on the express train so I couldn't get out and check around.) Otherwise great plot, nice twists, interesting characters, good descriptions, quick read, loved the book.
