Together with ex-sumo wrestler, Sakaguchi, Hiroshi scours Tokyo’s sacred temples, corporate offices and industrial wastelands to find out why one woman would be driven to murder when she seems to have it all. Hiroshi’s determined to cut through Japan’s ambiguities—and dangers—to find the murdering ex-hostess before she extracts her final revenge—which just might be him.

The Moving Blade

by Michael Pronko


When the top American diplomat in Tokyo, Bernard Mattson, is killed, he leaves more than a lifetime of successful Japan-American negotiations. He leaves a missing manuscript, a lost keynote speech and a tangled web of relations. When his alluring daughter, Jamie, returns from America wanting answers, Detective Hiroshi Shimizu is dragged from the safe confines of his office into the street-level realities of Pacific Rim politics. Hiroshi searches for the killer from Tokyo’s back alley bars to government offices, through anti-nuke protests to an American naval base. When more bodies turn up, Hiroshi must choose between desire and duty.
