Critics reviews

The Battles series continued with Proxy War (73) and Police Tactics (74), a pair of densely plotted, Machiavellian tales of Hiroshima yakuza warfare, with dozens of gang foot soldiers meeting violent ends at the behest of their suit-clad bosses, whose greatest concern seem to be how to save money while waging the war.
