I could only stare at his tattoos, enraptured by its beauty. I saw not  one inch of skin from his neck to his ankles. I had never seen a Yakuza with a full body suit. I noticed none of his fingers were missing, which marked him out as respectable.
 
The man turned and saw me. He cleared his throat and said, “What are you staring at? Never seen all this?”
 
In The Yakuza’s Girl, narrated by Thanadda, Nook retraces her journey from a poor village in Thailand to the neon lights of Shinjuku, the rundown brothels of Yokohama, and the rural onsen where she meets the charismatic Tatsuo. Nook quickly rises through the ranks of prostitution, gaining the trust of Tatsuo’s Yakuza affiliates. Candid and compassionate, The Yakuza’s Girl is an unputdownable and unflinching look into the world of prostitution and organized crime.
