First read this book many years ago on a flight back from Tokyo out of Narita. It was one of the only English books the store had. Even then i was impressed by the story of this professional assassin and the author’s knowledge of Tokyo. As with all good books, the way you identify with the characters in the story are what book you and Eisler has done a good job getting you to identify with a cold, professional assassin. I enjoyed not only the storyline but also the descriptions of places in Tokyo that clearly exist and are well known by the author. It lends the book credibility from the real world. Worth a read.
