(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!
4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Thriller for Financial Enthusiasts 21. Mai 2013
Von A Goddess of Literature - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Samurai have a deep instilled philosophy of discipline, commitment to training, and above all honor. While you won't find too many sword wielding warriors in today's political skirmishes, there are still many followers of this way of life. Modern day Samurai choose their own battlefields. Matsuo Noda studied the terrain, he planned his strategy carefully, and for his battleground he chose Wall Street.

I've often stated that one reason that I like to read classic science fiction is to compare the predicted technology with what we do have today. Though this book was written only 25 years ago, the same theory holds true. America's economy is in the toilet. The Federal Reserve is printing money with nothing to back it. This leads to inflation, which is not the fact that the things we buy are actually worth more, but that the dollar is worth so little. The only thing that America still manufactures in high quantity is people, and yet we still import those as well. Don't get me wrong, I am not against immigrants, I just don't understand why people are still coming to America when there are so few jobs available now.

This novel brings into focus what has slowly and subtly happened in this country. Corporations and their big CEOs are receiving high salaries and tons of toys - company owned limos, planes, boats, vacation homes, etc - instead of reinvesting company profits to update and improve products as available technology becomes more advanced. They end up with an item on the market which was incredible in its heydey but is now obsolete with newer and better versions being sold by competitors.

It is actually a bit scary just how closely author Thomas Hoover's predictions in this book have become our reality. In this story a Japanese businessman takes the reins, begins buying up American companies after the stock market hits an all time low - which he instigated, jockeys into position for hostile takeovers if the administrators won't roll over and play nice, and prepares to restructure the companies to make them viable and competitive again. But is his strategy really meant to benefit the American public or does he have a hidden agenda that will pull the rug out from under the American economy that already has the structural strength of a house of cards during hurricane winds?
