    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"
    "Harsh, Intense, Amazing"
    Overall

    No doubt a great book, but one of the few times where a book is elevated in it's conversion to audio book. Though, clearly not a professional reader (he hiccups a bit during the reading), Adelstein has lived this stuff and you can detect it in his voice. It's haunting. He's lived a life and worked a job that would annihilate most anyone's humanity and still found the courage to stand for something. Seriously commendable. Big ups Mr. Adelstein!
