This is a Gold Medal Book I found on munseys.com for a free download, and so I decided to check out the title because I usually enjoy any PBO displaying the distinctive Fawcett/Gold Medal logo on its cover. John McPartland is a brand new author to me. I give his AFFAIR IN TOKYO an enthusiastic thumbs up. Author Bill Crider provides a fine article on Mr. McPartland who died at the early age of 47 here: http://is.gd/XpShdw.Sergeant First Class Robert E.

Lee of Mississippi, the protagonist narrating the tale, works as a combat journalist for the STARS AND STRIPES. While hes on assignment in Japan to cover a volcano active at sea, he runs into Mary Satin Shea, a tall, beautiful, red-haired photographer for WORLD NEWS.

Of course, the romance sparks fly between them, and its love at first sight.The rub is Satin is engaged to Major General Wilton Duncan who is quite far above Sergeant Lee in the Armys chain of command. Throw in a shipwreck and fellow journalists death, and suddenly Lee finds himself in lots of trouble after hes accused of causing the death. He goes on the lam. Before you know it, hes mixed up with a Japanese drug lord and prostitution ring.

Satin is never far from his thoughts, as he tries to figure out how to get back with her.Mr. McPartlands strength is the colorful Japanese setting he creates. Its a slice of history coming right after the Korean War when the main occupying American forces have left Japan, but the Yankee influence is still felt everywhere. Lots of interesting details are given. He also does a good job of creating a perfectly vile antagonist in the drug lord. I like his muscular prose style and wry humor.

The plot holds up pretty well, but you should just enjoy the ride.All in all, Id read another of his titles somewhere down the line.
