What if the world's second largest economy decides to become a military superpower? No, we are not talking about China or Russia. We are talking about Japan. The novel, Project Kaisei, deals with complex issues surrounding the country of Japan, now facing not only the worst economic crisis since the end of WWII, but also growing military threats from North Korea and China. The story offers a glimpse of modern-day Japan, as seen from the eyes of a private investigator, and puts forth the real possibility of the resurgence of fascism in the island nation, resulting in nuclear armament. The readers will be treated to an accurate description of Japan and its people, rarely seen in the novels written by Western writers. The story contains no mighty super-hero or wisecracking anti-hero, just a lone private investigator trying to unearth the grand secret of Japan's nuclear weapons development project. His discovery puts his life in danger, as he becomes the target of assassination.
