Synopsis: After killing a yakuza in self-defense, an ex-military translator owes a debt that is payable only one way: take the dead man?s place searching for a missing woman in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Fusing gritty yakuza action with elements of classic noir in the city that started it all, the novella smashes Johnny Ban into a rarely explored corner of Los Angeles, sending him in search of two distinct parts of his past: his long-buried Americanness, and his first love?a Japanese woman up to her neck in trouble.
