Tokyo Girl is the second Frank Ryan mystery for Orca Book

Publisher. In Tokyo Girl, Frank turns a holiday in Tokyo into an

open-ended stay when he lands a lucrative gig in a jazz bar, with a

sideline providing piano lessons. But the owner of the bar turns out

to a senior member of the Japanese Mafia. When Frank is befriended

by an attractive woman who has a score to settle with his new boss,

Frank is suddenly way over his head in the Japanese underworld. By

the time the risks outweigh the benefits, Frank finds himself --

literally -- about to "swim with the fishes."

Kirkus Reviews said, "this little prose poem is as pellucid and finely

wrought as a haiku."
