    The Japanese Job is the fifth in the Ray Crawley series by Peter Corris When rich Japanese businessman, Ohira Yasuhiro is found at a Brisbane building site, encased in cement with a length of reinforcing rod through his heart and a Diggers slogan nearby, FSA operative, Ray Crawley is sent from Canberra to investigate Are the Diggers some sort of home grown militia group Not long after he arrives, Geoff Legge, a member of the Diggers, and his brother, Ross, a local FSA operative, are murdered Crawley suspects that Japanese organised crime figures Yakuza may be involved, but it seems no one has all the facts As he ruffles the feathers of the natives, and irritates his bosses in Canberra, Crawley also manages to hook up with a beautiful Japanese Australian, Mary Kurosawa, who claims to have information that will help Ray find the truth Everyone appears to have an agenda the Japs, the FSA, the Diggers, Mary Kurosawa Crawley s wife, Mandy is away in America, and he manages, once again, to play the maverick, working to his own plan, getting Huck up from the NSW South Coast to help him out, and generally getting in pretty deep I love the way Corris makes his characters so realistic even the villains are just flawed men with both strengths and weaknesses The dialogue natural and the feel of 90s post Fitzgerald Brisbane is palpable As always, Crawley is irreverent, laconic and cynical Another excellent dose of Crawley.
