)-- New Word City Llc announces the publication of A Death in Ueno, a new mystery eBook by novelist Mike Cooper.
Japan’s last decade has left thousands of people homeless, scraping by in parks and cardboard boxes throughout Tokyo. When one of these forgotten men is murdered, writes Cooper, his brother hires a private investigator. To find the killer, he must confront police indifference, yakuza hostility, and the closed silence of the down-and-out themselves.
