Review: One Summer In Tokyo
William J. Shannon's One Summer in Tokyo (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2012) is an intelligent thriller that makes you think. Unfortunately, it also makes you work. From its slow start to its sloppy editing, One Summer in Tokyo makes it difficult for the reader to get to the meat of the tale (murder, blackmail, and high stakes currency manipulation). Despite absolutely loving the insights into different aspects of Japanese culture, I just can't recommend this one.
I received a complimentary copy of One Summer in Tokyo to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. For full disclosure, see the sidebar.
