(Bantam 1988)

”A financial thriller right out of the headlines.” Adam Smith

Wall Street, murder, currency manipulation. A mysterious Japanese industrialist begins a massive 'hedging' in the US markets. Two weeks later, in Japan’s Inland Sea, divers working for him recover the Imperial Sword, given to Japan's first Emperor by the Sun Goddess. Can a lone American lawyer stop him from bringing down the US?

A high-finance, high-tech thriller that correctly predicted the 1987 stock market crash. It was the first fictional treatment of a major international concern of the Eighties. Set in locales as diverse as Wall Street and the offices of Japan's powerful Trade Ministry, THE SAMURAI STRATEGY describes a scenario of murder, worldwide currency manipulation, a revival of Japan's smoldering nationalism, and is set against a background of a new high-tech computer milieu. Matthew Walton, a freelance corporate 'takeover' lawyer is hired by a mysterious Japanese industrialist to purchase a New York office building and begin a massive 'hedging' in the financial markets. Two weeks later, off an island in the Inland Sea, divers working for the industrialist's organization, recover the original Imperial Sword, given to Japan's first Emperor by the Sun Goddess, Japan's 'Excalibur', and lost in a sea battle in 1185. He forms an '800-Year Fund' and billions of yen flow to his fingertips. He then dumps all the Treasuries Japan had acquired and devastates the American economy.

As the story rushes to its stunning conclusion, Matt Walton goes to Japan and determines that the 'Imperial Sword' is, in fact an unusual antique he once owned himself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful reading time 15. August 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I like this book. Thomas Hoover is a very skilled writer and he manages to tell a very complex story. For non-native speakers of English this book can also be recommended, as its vocabulary is not too complex and readers can learn a bit of broker's English. In his book, he is, in a certain degree, foretelling the current economic crisis. The atmosphere at the trading exchange is just like you could imagine it in a casino in Vegas.

I can also recommend this book, if you are at least a bit interested in Japanese culture, this book incidently started my interest in Japan about ten years ago, when I read it in German.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another great Hoover book 9. Juni 2011
Von Park Ave - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I deeply enjoyed the other Hoover novels available for Kindle, "The Moghul" and "Carribee". This offering, "The Samurai Strategy", suffers a little in comparison. Unlike other Hoover works, this effort was written and set in the late 80s-early 90s. The dated setting slightly detracts from the book in today's world. The subject matter still holds up very well in the aftermath of Wall St's latest shennagans, but some readers might get lost in the thick financial terminology. Well written and edited, this is a good book to spark thought on America's current financial and industrial situation.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting theme well thought out 22. Juni 2011
Von Coolfire - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Interesting theme well thought out. The author demonstrates in depth understanding of international financial inter-relationships and dependencies, as well as Japanese historical linkages between government and industries to insure the growth of prioritized key industries, which relationships have been responsible for the amazing and successful recovery from the devastation of WWII bombing. The characters are well written and for the most part believable.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A slowly paced book 12. Oktober 2011
Von Bob - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read a number of books including "Project Daedalus" and "Life Blood" by Thomas Hoover and found this one very different but still enjoyable. It seemed a very long book it was difficult to tell how long as it is not page enabled but runs to 10383 locations on the Kindle. I found it was a slow read as I know little or nothing about share dealing and found that I was re-reading sections to make sure I understood it. Again I have no idea about the Japanese culture it describes but it does read very realistically. Towards the very end it changes into an action thriller much in keeping with some of his other books.
Not one of my favourite books by this author but well written and at the moment still free so well worth a read.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Huh? 29. März 2012
Von D. L. Flory - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I loved Carabee and Moghul, and I thought Samurai would be more historical fiction, but I was sadly disappointed. I got as far as the 50% point having struggled in vain to understand all the financial concepts in which I was drowning and not giving a damn about any of the characters. And I quit!

2.0 von 5 Sternen disappointing 15. September 2012
Von Eclectic Elf - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Hoover's choice of international financial manipulation as subject matter for this novel is timely and raised my expectations. Instead most of the story is pulpy romance surrounding a contrived conflict between Japanese investors scheming to revive Imperial Japan and American regulators intent on saving the free world. The only thing missing from this "B" grade movie plot are black and white hats to differentiate the bad guys from the good guys. Not at all what I had hoped for.
