Author M. Anthony Phillipsabout this book: This book is about revenge pure and simple. Sam Phillips, a hard-nosed private detective and his partner, the often troubled ex-con Armstrong Jones, fresh off the case where they helped stop a Japanese crime gang take over Little Tokyo, Los Angeles in 1976. In the process, Sam killed the prime suspect in the murder of a witness he was protecting from the gang.

This in turn leads to the brother of the woman killed Michelle Yamada, to come to Los Angeles to exact revenge on Sam. Ken Yamada is the new Yakuza crime boss and is primed to run his illegal businesses in Little Tokyo while wiping out the competition. But first he has his mind set on taking care of Sam and Armstrong Jones.

This book is a fast paced and action filled sequel to the original story The Bushido Way/a Sam Phillips Mystery and picks up where that story ended.

This is a continued story and homage to my father, Sam Phillips, he himself a Private Investigator and inspiration to me.

It took me about 7 months to write this book.

I thought of the James Brown song Payback which fits the time and era.

I chose this cover because the gentleman fits the look of my father, especially the hat, although he didn't really carry a gun.

What I learned most is that Sam, a Vietnam veteran and my father, a Korean War veteran had similarities but Sam the character is not a religious man and my father was very religious.

Have a good time finding out who to root for.
