Ken Tanaka is a bit down and out, but has found a love of murder mystery weekends he discovered when he attended one on a lark. He had just won one and it was his turn to develop a mystery for the group. As he was planning his event he became involved in a Death in Little Tokyo. Cute how I did that? Written by Dale Furutani it is obviously set in Little Tokyo. Tanaka gets involved to clear his name and becomes tied to the case and finds himself in a bit of trouble.
This is a quaint novel. That is not an insult, but a reflection of the lightness of the writing and the story. There is not a lot of depth and that is okay for a difference. I have enjoyed Furutani’s other novels and enjoyed this one also.
