First in the series. Downsized computer programmer and mystery buff hosts his group's monthly mystery event for the first time. Going overboard, he rents an office and kits it out a la Phillip Marlow and ends up with a real client. Good story. Followed by "Toyotomi Blades."

A fascinating mystery that essentially has two endings. The story deals with criminals active today and a crime that was committed decades ago. I found it easy to understand why it won awards. The only problem is the sequel is not available on PBS at the moment.

It is a shame that the author's poor health has limited his literary output.

This book is also marketed as "Tod in Little Tokyo."
