"After wading through the tragedy of the Japantown murders, [struggling antiques dealer Jim Brodie] and his daughter have returned for a well-earned vacation. Checking in at the P.I. firm he inherited from his father, he's startled by the arrival of an old World War II veteran and his son. The father has come explicitly to see Brodie, and offers up a dark story connected to the war and a pair of violent home invasions committed in the Japanese capital only days earlier. Brodie takes a liking to the old soldier and agrees to provide protection, one of the services Brodie Security supplies. An unexpected murder soon shocks Brodie and his crew, and Brodie begins a wild ride through the worlds of kendo, the Triads, war atrocities, the backstreets of Yokohama's unfathomable Chinatown, Chinese spies, and an elusive group of killers after a long-lost treasure with a murky and dangerous history"-- Provided by publisher.

"Good things and bad things came and went and you had to live your life the best way you could, letting both wash over you. You could enjoy the good, but shouldn't cling to it, just as you shouldn't let the bad drag you down, because before you knew it the good would come around again."

"She said swimming was for fun and emergencies. The fun part was playing in the water with friends and stuff. Emergencies were for safety. She said a surprise might come and if it did we should be ready to do whatever the surprise wanted us to do. That's what lifeguards do, and they're the best swimmers ever. The world keeps spinning. I decided there can be good and bad and exciting when the world is spinning."
