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."
