“A rollicking good story. It’s interesting to see how the author has transplanted the world of the yakuza crime syndicates to present day Los Angeles. This is not a story about crime syndicates per se, which exist all over the world. Rather it’s a personal story about Daniel Goya which is intertwined with his Japanese culture and his involvement with the Yakuza.”
Yakuzawa: Rising Son
In the dirty and seedy underbelly of present-day Los Angeles, Daniel Goya finds that he is torn between his fading dental laboratory, his love for a new woman who has entered his life and the inescapable obligation to a family he hasn’t seen in over twenty years.
As Daniel becomes more and more involved with the “family business” he finds there are limitless rewards for the right man, but what will be asked of him. And what sacrifices is he prepared to make in a game with so few rules?
Yakuzawa: Rising Son is an action packed, sex-fueled story of Daniel’s journey of self-discovery and corruption as he descends into the world of porn, prostitution and murder in a city which might ultimately consume him.
