    One thought on “Death in Little Tokyo”

    1. I think this book was recommended by another author I have read. In any case, it was enjoyable. The writer uses it in part as a mechanism for commentary on Japanese culture and American politics. I actually liked that aspect of the book.

    2. Could not get into this book. The beginning was not engaging nor was it interesting. Quit after three chapters.

    3. I've been intrigued by this little title for quite a while and thought that it would be an interesting book. After all, Los Angeles has a sizable Asian population and its about time that it is represented in the mystery genre with a private eye. But I was a bit disappointed in Ken Tanaka. He almost falls into being an amateur detective and I would rate him as only fair in how he handles this "case." The book was pretty slow for me and I found myself mentally yelling at Tanaka as he sort of moped [...]

    4. I had read book 2, the Toyotomi Blades, and liked it, and looked for years for this book. Glad to see it republished in e-. I really enjoy the Ken Tanaka stories, and I wish Dale Furutani had written more! Ken Tanaka becomes involved in murder when a woman mistakes the detective office he's set up for his murder mystery club as a real place and asks him to pick up a package for her. Ken thinks "why not?" and sets in motion a series of events that gets him questioned by the police, beaten up, thr [...]

    5. This is a mystery written in the 1990's, set in Los Angeles' Little Tokyo. Ken Tanaka has been laid off from his computer job, has joined a mystery weekend club, and is setting up his own mystery for his friends to solve. His set-up includes a dummy detective agency. Enter a woman who mistakes his set for a real detective agency; Ken mistakenly thinks that his mystery club friends have sent him a fake mystery to solve. The mystery itself is interesting and somewhat unusual, but what I liked abou [...]

    6. DEATH IN LITTLE TOKYO (Ama. Sleuth-Ken Tanaka-Japan-Cont) - GFurutani, Dale - 1st in seriesFrom Fantastic Fiction: While staging a mock mystery for the Los Angeles Mystery Club, Ken Tanaka takes on a real case only to find himself embroiled in a mystery involving international smugglers and the Japanese Mafia in Little Tokyo.Interesting characters with foibles. The story raises social issues without preaching. The story was only okay.

    7. Enjoyed the familiar LA, Little Tokyo setting and Japanese American characters but actual mystery was a bit gory even for someone who loves to read mysteries.

    8. I prefer Dale Furutani's samurai mysteries, Death at the Crossroads, Jade Palace Vendetta and Kill the Shogun.

    9. A very classic detective in style, even if Tanaka is no real detective, but gets only hired as such for doing a small job. I also enjoyed learning more about Japanese American history and customs.

    10. A well written and funny story about a murder mystery. Very insightful as to the Japanese American experience in America during WWII and its aftermath.
