Rising Sun


Nakamoto corporation is celebrating the grand opening of its new headquarters, the Nakamoto Tower, in Los Angeles; the office building is awash with celebrities, dignitaries and local politicians. On the 46th floor of the very same building, Cheryl Lynn Austin, 23, is murdered. Lieutenant Peter Smith, the Special Services Liaison for the LAPD, is assigned to this case. He is joined by retired Captain John Connor who has lived in Japan for a while and is thoroughly accustomed to Japanese culture.

The investigation is hampered from the start as the Japanese insist that the opening party, which takes place on the 45th floor, not be disturbed. It soon becomes apparent that evidence from the security cameras has been tampered with, and that the Japanese requested the Special Services Liaison only to delay the investigation. Throughout the book Connor uses his knowledge of Japanese customs, culture and mindset to help Smith solve the mystery.
