Traitors & Lies – A Shig Sato Mystery: The Cold War Comes to Tokyo (The Shig Sato Mysteries Book 3) Joseph Mark Brewer

Traitors and Lies is the third in the Shig Sato mystery series. I’ve read all three and enjoy Sato’s investigative skills as well as author Joseph Mark Brewer’s grasp of Japanese culture. In this book Brewer combines Russian gangsters with the usual Japanese underworld characters. This makes for an action packed read. Coupled with the criminals and their activity is the mystery of a body … Continue reading Traitors & Lies – A Shig Sato Mystery: The Cold War Comes to Tokyo (The Shig Sato Mysteries Book 3) Joseph Mark Brewer
