Overview

A body is discovered on the dealing room floor of upper-crust investment bankers Baund Major, in this financial thriller from best-selling author Martin Roth. Meanwhile, a shady Japanese takeover specialist is trying to acquire an obscure Australian oil company.

Enter Feisty Ferreira, a thirty-something geologist from Brazil who has taken a high-salary position at Baund Major in order to support the orphanage that she impulsively bought on a mission trip to the Philippines.

Sent to Tokyo to uncover the mystery of the takeover bid, she finds herself enveloped in a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of government. Along the way she is also forced to battle yakuza gangsters to rescue her own niece from the exotic Tokyo Bossa Nova nightclub, where she is being forced to work as a hostess.

Her only ally would seem to be handsome Japanese investment banker Shiggy Sanjo. Yet even he may not be telling the truth.

In this high-intensity action thriller nothing is what it seems and no one can be trusted. Plot twists will leave the reader guessing until the - literally - explosive finale.

    Tokyo Bossa Nova, by Martin Roth, introduces Feisty Ferreira, a

    Tokyo Bossa Nova, by Martin Roth, introduces Feisty Ferreira, a unique and interesting character that is sure to show up in a sequel or two. Geologist turned financial analyst, she is a divorced Christian in her thirties; originally from Brazil, educated in the States, and now living in Australia. If that isn’t enough, she’s a philanthropist of sorts and owns an orphanage in the Philippines. She’s also a bit of a sleuth, fearlessly sniffing out trouble despite herself. I really like this character and I look forward to reading more books with her as the star.

    In Tokyo Bossa Nova, strange things are taking place at Feisty’s place of employment. Feisty is sent to Tokyo to investigate the take over of a small Australian oil company. It appears that the Tokyo mafia might be involved. Previous to her trip, one of her colleagues was murdered in the office for no apparent reason. While in Japan, she discovers that a distant relative is being blackmailed. Mishaps, misinformation, a kidnapping, an explosive hijacking, and even a hint of romance are all part of a ‘day in the life’ of Fiesty Ferreira.

    This is a great book in the style of corporate espionage. It is engaging and well written with plenty of details about the corporate side of things without overwhelming those of us that don’t understand it all. There are a lot of characters, which was sometimes confusing, but the fact that the book is written in first person from Feisty’s point of view keeps it moving along at a brisk enough pace as to not become tedious.
