Overview

Goodbye Yamaguchi is a fast moving story about an ambitious attempt by Japanese gangsters (yakuza) to seize control of all vice operations in cosmopolitan Miami, Florida, the gateway for predators from Central and South America.

Two ex-Secret Service agents, fired for their failure to prevent the assassination of a Black presidential candidate, reunite three years later to work as private investigators under a lucrative short-term contract for their ex-boss. All government agencies are alarmed at the high murder rate and growing violence in Miami because of the drug trade and the security lapses on America’s southern border.

A gang of ninjas has been sent by a rogue Japanese crime syndicate to seize an old Nicaraguan coastal freighter from its murdered crew. Moored in the Miami River in downtown Miami, the cargo ship serves as the home of the ninjas who avoid suspicion by posing as martial arts instructors. Using nightly assassinations and planted rumors to pit rival Latino gangs against each other, the ninjas gradually begin to gain control of all Miami Vice. An elderly Japanese speaking Filipino watchman, who had earlier survived Japanese army atrocities in the Philippines in World War II, goes aboard the ship to work as a night watchman. He rescues a drugged Black prostitute held as a sex slave and gang-raped by the ninjas. Both he and the resurrected prostitute are recruited to join the two Secret Service investigators.

A Sicilian Mafia family, having failed to expand its drug activities into Spain, enters Miami to oppose the ninjas and Colombian cartel with further treacherous deception and murder.

As the violence spins out of control, the federal agencies and the authorities in Miami send one agent to Mexico to search for answers from the violent Mexican drug cartels. The other agent goes to Japan to question the Yamaguchi-gumi crime syndicate and its yakuza rivals.
