Played (book)

by Yoshi Kametani

The protagonist, bored with his mundane existence and day to day routine, decides one night to walk aimlessly through mid-town Manhattan. Serendipitously ending up in Times Square, a tasteless corporate Disneyland and haven to seedy business, drugs, prostitution and crime, he finds himself intrigued by the area and begins being drawn back night after night. Unexpectedly, he soon gets to know some of the regulars who hang around the streets and eventually meets a curiously compelling character. Quickly befriended, the protagonist is taken on a journey down a convoluted path riddled with deception. Hustle after hustle, lie after lie, a string of events leads to an unforeseen and undesirable situation.
