This starts a whirlwind of events, as Billy finds himself brawling with Yakuza mobsters, chasing geisha through the streets of Tokyo, duking it out in an upscale corporate sex club, and racing through the streets of Tokyo on a stolen motorcycle.

This fast-paced story takes the story from the glitz of Tokyo's Ginza, to the sex-club laced streets of Kabuki-cho. The hero is cynical yet sensitive, and has a full arsenal of martial arts moves.
