Today, November 1st, 60 Minutes did a stellar piece on the Yakuza in Japan and my life covering them as a reporter, and the one scoop regarding Goto Tadamasa, the Professor Moriarty of Japan’s yakuza that got me in a lot of trouble. A lot has changed since 60 Minutes came to Japan to report on the story. It remains to be seen how it will all play out. If you want to know more about it all, read TOKYO VICE. It will tell you more about Japan, the mob, and the underworld than you probably want to know. For more on Goto-gumi, see the crime resources. Thanks for stopping by.

Loved your interview on Fresh Air yesterday…very interesting. I will read your book.
I saw you on The Daily Show… a rare opportunity to read about the real Yakuza…I look forward to read your book.
