about

Meet Billy Chaka, ace reporter for Cleveland's hottest-selling Asian teen magazine.  He's brash, savvy, and prone to hair-trigger fits of karate.  Billy's in Tokyo to cover the 19-and-Under Handicapped Martial Arts Championship and meet up with his friend Sato Migusion, the international renowned director of such cult film classics as Sex Up the Hotrod, Baby! But Sato never shows. Instead, the girl of Billy's dreams stumbles into a dive bar with tatooed Yakuza mobsters in hot pursuit.  Then Billy will start brawls in swanky corporate sex clubs, be offered a golf club membership by a secret religious order, meet a dog trained in the ways of the Samurai, and race stolen motorcycles through the neon-choked streets of Tokyo. Packed with enough over-the-top fists action to make Jackie Chan cry, and featuring the most lovable uncool hero since Austin Powers, this hilarious send-up is a pop culture potpourri of sub-epic proportion.

?If you crossbred "The Big Sleep with "Memoirs of a Geisha and then took its offspring and crossed it with Chinatown you'd end up with Tokyo Suckerpunch--a tongue-in-bloody-cheek quasi-punk-noir tale of death and deception in the superfantastic Far East. Billy Chaka plays a sort of Drew Carey version of Philip Marlowe, which I guess makes Isaac Adamson the Cleveland version of Raymond Chandler. 'Nuff said.?--Bill Fitzhugh, author of "Cross Dressing and "Pest Control"Astonishing. Simply astonishing. Mind-blowing, in fact.
