“Tokyo Girl” is the follow-up to “Beethoven’s Tenth”, featuring reluctant sleuth Frank Ryan.
This is an entertaining and quick read which I received an advance copy for review from “Orca Book Publishers” through the Early Reviewer Program. This book is a paperback of less than 150 pages in a huge font that can be easily read and enjoyed by anyone over the age of 16. “This is the Way I see it”, the offer does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
In a few words:
At the end the first book “Beethoven’s Tenth “, Frank had to flee British Columbia after things got out of hand to only end up the target of the Yaskuza family ……not a good thing if you are a pianist. “Tokyo Girl” tells in short terms what Frank is up against.
This “Rapid Reads” is short, well-written with no fuss and no extra words to bog down the flow. The plot has all the good elements wrapped in a few words with a few twists to keep us on our toes. Being a short story everything is a bare minimum, not much character and plot development but having said this, the story is nevertheless captivating and one I enjoyed it quite a bit.
