it was amazing

This is the most skillfully written/translated piece of crime fiction that I have read in a long time, possibly ever. A reformed yakuza walks quite deliberately back into the life for reasons that are not completely clear until the very last page. He is hunted by a man who is almost completely empty of any enjoyment of life beyond his ever-present Gauloise. You wouldn't think this could be a great story, but it is.
