Unless I mention otherwise in an author's note, the places that appear in the booksthe bars and restaurants, the judo and jiu-jitsu training academies, the streets and alleysare all real, and I've visited them all to make sure the details are right (tough job, I know. I try not to complain). Because some of these places are far away, I write a lot of notes and take photographs to refresh my recollection later. Here are some of those photossee how they compare to what you saw in your mind's eye.
