For Tatsuyama, the sport of sumo is all that he wants and all that he knows, but the world out there is changing fast. When he is approached by men who want to turn the sport around and allow betting to begin in earnest, he thinks nothing of it, at least, not until the rest of his life starts to come crashing down as well. Before he knows it, Tatsuyama is in a race to not only get his career back, but his very life as well, and he’ll have to use a variety of new allies in order to get where he wants to be ... if it’s at all possible in Sumotori by G.P. Hutchinson.
This book was definitely an adventure story and one where you never knew what was going to happen next. Each of the characters was very deep and seemed to be really believable. You felt like you were drawn into the story from the start, and with a plot that was different from what you’ll find anywhere else. This is a unique storyline and it’s something that you’ll want to check out for yourself. It has a lot of adventure and thrilling scenes with just enough of the romance and camaraderie to tie it all together. With Tatsuyama, Naoko, Shiori and Detective Kobayashi, you’re going to want to immerse yourself in the story, and with the author's writing style you’re not going to have a problem with that. Sumotori is a great book that I will recommend.
