I read this primarily due to my interest in stories re: Lustbader has written other books that touch on these subjects and they, like this story, are enjoyable in a simple manner. The action is well done, albeit overblown and a bit too theatrical in my opinion.

His use of metaphysical and mystical devices detracts from an otherwise decent storyline, however. In all, it was a decent break from my more complexly written mystery novels.
I am very glad it is over. I could not get a hold on it as it was all foreign to me- names of characters and etc as well as the description of the actions and places are road blocks to me tht slow me down- I’m probably OCD since I feel I must understand what is going onbefore feel I can turn th page.
This book takes place in Japan with many Japanese cultural topics that are just so foreign to me they slow the read way down and take all the joy of reading away. I just can’t rate a read that I don’t enjoy any higher, I use my rating to decide if I will buy another of the author’s books later on.
There were some areas that I could follow that I felt were well written and I hate to rate an author so low but I don’t want to go through another 3 weeks on a book I usually read in 3 days. I even spent several days looking thru the net to find character summaties, notesand etc. Aug 20, Darryl Walker rated it it was amazing. Lustbader has as little compunction for killing off characters as George R.
Mar 15, Nadine Brown rated it liked it. For Tony Linnear is once again in the thick of political intrigue, danger from the clans and the power of his own abilities. My old mate would have loved this.
Jan 07, Pat Quinn rated it liked it. One of the poorer entries in the series. A busy week and a slower reading book, but its done. Made me think of an old Nick Carter pulp but much! Nicholas Linnear is a business man, son of a military officer who was deeply involved in the recovery of Japan after WWII. Nicholas is deeply in to martial arts and even more mysterious oriental mental practices which give him extraordinary powers.

The story itself unfolds on 2 main fronts with Nicholas in Japan and Viet Nam his friend ex detective Lew Coaker who has an artificial had of deadly abilities in The US.
They along with Japanese government officials, Yakuza gangsters, an ex us soldier in Viet Nam who has grabbed hold of the drug trade, a powerful US senator as will as Mafia heads and other mysterious characters keep the reader bouncing around from one local to the other.
Interesting but at times tedious reading.
May 09, Gabe S rated it it was amazing. Read this in the mid 90’s when just a horny teen – the Ninja stuff and of course the sexy stuff blew my hormonal juvenile mind. I do recall I was getting a little inured by the time I got to this book – probably a four star by this stage to be honest but still, the whole series was a watershed for me, having never read these kind of books before, so will give this the usual 5 star for that reason. Haven’t read this since, and I honestly don’t know if I’d like it just as much but a nostalgic 5 Read this in the mid 90’s when just a horny teen – the Ninja stuff and of course the sexy stuff blew my hormonal juvenile mind.
Haven’t read this since, and I honestly don’t know if I’d like it just as much but a nostalgic 5 stars for sure – for then at least. Nicholas Linnear takes on a partner in this episode. A one-handed, ex-New York detective helps Nicholas settle a family debt to the Japanese yakuza and destroy an ex-G. Action from beginning to end with lots of twists, flashbacks, and suspense. May 07, J. Ewbank rated it liked it Shelves: Eric Lustbader is one of a kind.
Original is a word for him. The Floating City is an unjsual story and most of his stuff is writeen in the Orient and about the Orient. This is a good read. Very enjoyable for those who like the orient and supense and mystery. Back on Track Mr.
His descriptions are crisp without the adjective rich exposure. Linear has stepped into a realm of psychic experience that makes him a wizard of sorts, but this is fiction and we can accept that characterization. Interesting I rated it four stars because I feel it was well written and informative. I lost interest at times because of to much detail.
However, overall I found it to be very good. I will read more of this author’s books. Aug 16, Michael rated it did not like it. Mar 10, Joseph Kramer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Apr 30, Pete rated it liked it.
