    At 19, Jake Adelstein went to Japan in search of peace and tranquility. What he got was a life of crime reporting at the prestigious Yomiuri Shinbun. For 12 years of 80-hour workweeks, he covered the seedy side of Japan, where extortion, murder, human trafficking, and corruption are as familiar as ramen noodles and sake.

    Steven says: "Memoir, crime story and travelogue in one package"
    "Not about Tokyo, About Reporting"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you're looking for a story about a reporting, and reporting in general, you might like it.
    But if you're looking for something that focuses on Tokyo Vice...look elsewhere, this book is light on that, and heavy on unnecessary description of irrelevant details.


    Has Tokyo Vice turned you off from other books in this genre?

    meh...not really into this genre anyway. Just planning for a trip to Tokyo and thought it would be interesting.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Author narrated...he was ok as a narrator, but the content was weak.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    meh.
