Death in Little Tokyo: (Ken Tanaka Series #1)by Dale Furutani
It's Ken Tanak's turn to stage a mock mysery for the Los Angeles Mystery Club and he's determined to do it right. Tanaka sets himself up as a fake P.I., office and all, only to have a femme fatale straight out of the movies try to hire him. Taking the case on a whim, Ken's detecting leads him to a mutilated corpse in a Little Tokyo hotel room. The police suspect Tanaka, and to clear his name, he becomes caught up in a mystery involving the Japanese Mafia and an international smuggling scheme. From the quaint shops of Little Tokyo to a seed strip joint, the murderer's trail leads back to a tragic chapter in America's past. And when it comes to finding the killer with a very sharp sword, the answer is too close to home...
A wobbly debut.
