Rating: 4.5 stars over 13 reviews
Description: Working Tokyo nightclubs is easy money for beautiful and troubled American Val Benson - until a wealthy client with a dark past and sinister hobbies reluctantly gives up a map to one of the greatest treasures lost in World War II. With yakuza, motorcycle gangs, rogue CIA, treasure hunters, pimps, Thai boxers and her Congressman father snapping at her high heels, Val burns a trail of destruction across Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand and the Burmese borderlands to get the loot before someone less deserving does.
From comfort women and tomb-raiding in Japanese-occupied Burma to the murderous echoes of the Vietnam War, long forgotten crimes come roaring back to life. Val, a new anti-hero of Asian Noir, ambiguous and unreliable, takes her dark, epic journey with her friends: a Japanese nightclub hostess with broken dreams, a British kickboxer, and a washed up Australian treasure hunter. The superficial party girl, confronted by mounting horrors, must dig deep to discover an inner courage to survive and win the prize - and maybe redemption. Gaijin Cowgirl by American writer Jame DiBiasio is a breathless, violent page-turner with a surprising, dangerous heroine to match.
Reviews: "This is classic pulp fiction, a tangled web of kinkiness, conspiracies, betrayals, chases, and violence delivered at high velocity with punchy, vibrant prose. Perfect beach read."
