3 1/2 out of 5
I think this writer has a lot of talent and potential. This was an enjoyable read with very good character development. The one thing that would have made this story better was a bit more complexity to the plot, more of the Yakuza element. As any fan of Yakuza fiction will tell you, we like to be immersed in the culture, the gritty underbelly of what their world is really like. And the prospect of men who are trying to leave that life behind is beyond fascinating.
