Standard detective story with an up-to-date, multi-cultural private eye in present day London. Sam Spade meets Ali G. Lots of references to great cricket players and matches, if you're into that kind of thing (I wasn't but the book was still fun.)

Great period detail. Great plot, plentiful violence and a hilarious version of Castro as opportunistic bumbler.

OK thriller. Hero is a half-Japanses half-American who lives in Japan and is a professional hit-man with a shadowy military past. Not nearly as good as Lee Child or Stephen Hunter novels.
