  • Short Description
Frank Ryan navigates the unfamiliar culture and structure of Tokyo.
Out of tune in Tokyo.

Piano tuner and jazz musician Frank Ryan is in Japan teaching bored housewives how to play piano. Then he gets a gig in a trendy underground bar and ends up ensnared with a young woman with a grudge and the crime boss who owns the bar. Drawn into Tokyo Girl’s vendetta, Frank stumbles into an underworld where transgressions are paid for by the flash of a razor-sharp cleaver. And for a pianist, that’s not a good thing.

Tokyo Girl is the follow-up to Beethoven’s Tenth, featuring reluctant sleuth Frank Ryan.

Brian’s first nonfiction book for a general audience, The End of the River, was published in 2008.

"This little prose poem is as pellucid and finely wrought as a haiku." - Kirkus Reviews

"Quick paced and full of tension...Recommended." - CM Magazine
