In the summer of 2009, Jack Dempsey took his band, Crystal Buddha, to Tokyo, Japan to record an album and play some gigs. The trip was supposed to have been the start of big things for the four London rockers. The kids in Tokyo loved British bands and he was sure that Crystal Buddha would win them over.
What Jack hadn't bargained on was attracting the attention of some of Tokyo's criminal element. However, before long, he'd discovered just how persistent these underworld operators could be when there was something that they wanted.
The incidents that followed would take Jack from the streets of Shibuya to Shinjuku's notorious Kabukicho district as they threatened not only the the future of Crystal Buddha and the album, but also the safety of the band members themselves.
Born in the UK, Jason Webb reached working age just as the country was going through an industrial transition. Traditional engineering was dying out and computer technologies were growing in importance. Sadly, he chose the wrong industry, shipbuilding. However, as he watched his chosen industry shrink, he developed a keen sense for social changes and how they affect our lives. Jason now writes books that not only entertain, but also give some insights into our modern lives. His primary objective is to make his readers smile and make them feel satisfied when they reach that final page, but he also wants to make them think about how the words in that book might reflect their own lives. Over the years, Jason has also developed a love of Japan, Japanese culture, and the Japanese people. This also shows in his work, as he uses his writing to explore more of the country that he loves.
