The Informer

by Akimitsu Takagi

A crime story set in modern Japan; the translation makes it rather stilted, but expect lots of twists and turns.

Sakai grinned. 'Right from the start I had my eyes on men who used to work in the securities industry, and I'm proud of my idea. They've been trained in the heartless world of money and have the guts to do pretty bold things. Furthermore, they're used to meeting and talking with smart people, and have the intelligence and cunning to ferret out information.' ... Segawa was speechless with admiration. This was an awesome man, he thought. To have any hope of success in this job, he must learn from him.
