For twelve years of eighty-hour workweeks, he covered the seedy side of Japan--extortion, murder, human trafficking, and corruption.

  • "Jake Adelstein ist der einzige westliche Journalist, der jemals als Polizeireporter in Japan arbeiten durfte. Er berichtete viele Jahre für die führende japanische Zeitung über die dunkle Seite Japans, wo Erpressung, Mord, Menschenhandel und Korruption ebenso häufig vorkommen wie Ramen-Nudeln und Sake. Doch als er seinen letzten Knüller landen wollte, stand e rJapans berüchtigtstem Yakuza-Boss plötzlich persönlich gegenüber. Da ihm und seiner Familie der Tod drohte, gab er auf ... vorübergehend. Dann schlug er zurück. In 'Tokio-Mafia' erzählt Jake Adelstein, wie aus einem unerfahrenen Jungreporter - dessen Wing-Chun-Kampf mit einem älteren Kollegen nicht sein einziger Anfängerfehler war - ein wagemutiger Enthüllungsjournalist wurde, auf den die Yakuza ein Kopfgeld aussetzte. Mit seinen lebendigen, emotionalen Geschichten aus der Welt der modernen Yakuza, von der selbst Japaner wenig wissen, ist 'Tokio-Mafia' von der ersten bis zur letzten Zeile ein ebenso faszinierendes wie informatives Buch und ein einzigartiger, aufschlussreicher Bericht aus erster Hand über die Schattenseiten der japanischen Kultur."
  • "Tells a riveting, often humorous tale of his journey from an inexperienced cub reporter - who made rookie mistakes like getting in a martial-arts battle with a senior editor - to a daring investigative journalist with a price on his head."
