9781468309423: The Little Tokyo Informant: A Novel

Autumn, 1941. FBI Assistant Director Harry Guttman hears a rumor that the Soviet Uion has infiltrated the highest levels of the United States government.

Looking deeper, Guttman finds that fifty thousand dollars have been mysteriously wired from the Russians to a Japanese bank in Los Angeles. But there the trail goes cold, so he taps his man on the street, Special Agent Jimmy Nessheim, to track it down.

Hailed as the "successor to Frederick Forsyth" (Independent), Andrwe Roseinheim continues the adventures of Nessheim and Guttman that began Fear Itself. The Little Tokyo Informant is a skillfully rendered portrait of America on the cusp on the world stage.

About the Author:

Andrew Rosenheim is the author of Fear Itself and The Little Tokyo Informant, also available from Overlook. He grew up in Chicago and in a small town in Michigan, and then went on to Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar in 1977. For many years he worked for Penguin Books and Oxford University Press. He is now a full-time writer.

Review:

"Rosenheim shows his keen eye for historical detail as he seamlessly incorporates historical figures such as J. Edgar Hoover and Clyde Tolson. His main characters are sharply defined and exhibit the mannerisms and language of the early 1940. Jimmy Nessheim and Harry Guttman are sure to be back for many adventures to come." —Mystery Scene

"Once again, Rosenheim's portrait of a pre-politically correct is jarring but fascinating...Rosenheim's use of historical detail is also effective...The Little Tokyo Informant is compelling, intelligent entertainment."  --Booklist
"Rosenheim is even better this time out at melding interesting leads with a thrilling story line and vivid descriptions of such locales as L.A.'s Little Tokyo."--Publishers Weekly

“Andrew Rosenheim’s The Little Tokyo Informant is a stylish, ingenious thriller. This is compelling and intelligent fiction, laden with tension and suspense.”  —Jim Crace, National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author of Being Dead

"The ghosts of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler loom large here, as do the classic films Chinatown and Casablanca, lending Rosenheim’s prose a velvety texture." —Kirkus Reviews

“Andrew Rosenheim’s The Little Tokyo Informant is a wonderfully intelligent and beautifully written historical thriller—I can’t wait for the next installment in the series!” — Max Byrd, author of The Paris Deadline and California Thriller
