A marriage of convenience both unites and divides unhappy, hard-drinking translator Shoko and Mutsuki, a gay physician whose sardonic boyfriend Kon is very much a fixture on their scene.

Ashes by Kenzō Kitakata( Book )
6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 220 libraries worldwide
Japanese crime novelist Kitakata makes his U.S. debut with this dark, hard-boiled mob story, set in modern-day Japan. Tanaka is a yakuza standing on the edge of a big family transition. With the mob boss in the hospital dying of old age (a rare thing in his line of work), Tanaka fortifies his branch of the organization with more men and strong business ventures in prostitution and drug trafficking. As everyone waits for a change in command, his branch gains respect and importance through a mob war and shrewd business transactions. Tanaka must choose between ruling the family or crushing it with his new syndicate. Unfortunately, this novel is caught between being a convincing, character-driven tale and a low-octane mob story that never seems to come out with guns blazing. After an abrupt shift in perspective midway through the novel, it finally settles into Tanaka's insightful voice
