“Compelling, spunky, and instantly likable. From the UK to Japan and back, Hugh Ashton’s Leo’s Luck delivers
a high-tension blend of behind-the-scenes rock ’n’ roll, high-tech capers, and yakuza thugs.”
Barry Lancet award-winning author of JAPANTOWN and TOKYO KILL
“Leo's Luck reads like Richard Parker (Donald Westlake) crossed with Murakami – the witty tone and hard-boiled
Tokyo go together like deep fried sushi. If you think that's unappetizing, you've never tried the good stuff.
Improbably plausible with a sci-fi twist to keep you on your toes, casual violence, and dark humor. Ashton
captures the subtleties and strangeness of Japan's megalopolis as only a long term veteran could.”
Jake Adelstein author of Tokyo Vice, soon to be a movie starring Daniel Radcliffe
“Hugh Ashton steps out of his usual wheelhouse with this book, but you'd never know it as he handles an unfamiliar
world with the depth and skill of a master craftsman. A wonderful mix of character and originality.”
Percival Constantine author of the pulp action/adventure series The Myth Hunter
