Description

While investigating threats against munerous local karate champs, Frank and Joe discover links to a theft at an armory, and the two are soon facing the Japanese underworld and ninja masters.

Reviewed on 12th August 2022

When Frank’s karate instructor is attacked, he and Joe start an investigation which puts themselves against one of the world’s biggest criminal operations.

The plot in some respects is unrealistically big for the two brothers, and that made it feel unlikely.

There’s a good set of guest characters though, including a teenage girl who is possibly the most authentic female character to have appeared in the 92 novels so far. But this does feel like it’s at the expense of Chet, who in recent novels seems to have been sidelined and has lost both his place as comic entertainment and as useful hobbyist.
