Created by Jack Seward
CURT STONE is a blond-haired blue-eyed American P.I. operating in Tokyo. An almost legendary figure in CIC during World War II and Korea, he resigned his commission after disregarding orders to rescue agents behind North Korean lines. He chose to remain in Japan, where he invested in real estate and various night clubs, and founded Far East Investigations, Inc.
Usually his cases, released as a series of "men's adventures" original paperbacks by Belmont Tower, involve finding a person or a treasure and utilizing his vast network of informants among the B-girls of Tokyo. He quite often comes up against Chinese Communist intelligence agents. As the series goes on the sex and violence ration ratchets up, and the series shifts from third person narration to first, and back again.
He operates his office with Augustus "Gus" Nakano, a Hawaiian-born Japanese-American family man, and Jeanne Auber, his half-French, half-Japanese secretary/fiancee, reputed to be the most beautiful woman in Tokyo.
Jack Seward is a noted expert on Japan and its culture and has written a number of books on the subject. As a result, sometimes these books read almost like a travelogue of Japan.
