Overview

Facing retirement and weary from caring for his terminally ill wife, Tokyo police Inspector Shig Sato returns to Azabu Police Station and teams up with his old partner, Detective Ken Abe, for his last month with the department. On his first night back, a young waitress at a jazz club is murdered. Her boyfriend, an American Marine, is missing, and the club owner is nowhere to be found. Sato knows that if the American has anything to do with the murder, it could ignite a political and diplomatic firestorm. Sato believes that finding the American is his first duty. Then Sato learns that the club owner is the son of prominent crime boss Ses Fujimori. Ties between the Fujimoris and Satos go back a generation. It’s something the inspector cannot escape, especially since he asked Fujimori for help in solving a case early in his career. Fujimori agreed, knowing that Sato would be in his debt. With his son now a murder suspect, what will Fujimori demand in return for his cooperation? What price will Sato pay to bring a young woman’s killer to justice?

    Waiting for the second book. This one was so well written full of twist and turns, and the way Sato's personnel life was tied in the storyline. To the author keep writing more

    Very enjoyable

    So looking forwad to more from Mr. Brewer. I found The Gangster's Son to be a real page turner. Even though the setting is Japan, it's easy to forget as you get lost in a story that can be happening anywhere. The place becomes secondary. The only thing that matters is will Sato get his man. Bravo, Joe! - Erin
