Pearl is a character I like a lot. The end of this book leaves me wanting more! Keep em coming!

Pearl #4

Well, she went and did it. Pearl started the biggest Yakuza clash since the Yama-Ichi Feud. Why? Because enough is enough. Just because she was born into a world that runs a certain way doesn't mean that she has to follow their rules when all she wants to do is master the art of tattoo. A scintillating new series and character from the Peabody Awar...

If you search for a positive awesome story, don't search anymore, it's this one;
I really love the characterization of Jake. Yeah maybe Murf (like Jake name him) arrival is easy & very right timed.
But that make some mystery (How talk of Jake to him ... The old guitare fixer, the old waitress ?)
