The story of The Fuji Agenda
revolves around the immense, current trade deficit between the U.S. and Japan, how it is likely to become more of a problem without some drastic U.S. action, and how two people by chance seemingly discover a way to lead the U.S. out of its predicament.
Ambassador John S. O’Hara, an aging career diplomat at the American Embassy in Tokyo, is visited by his son, Kevin, a university professor of journalism on sabbatical leave.
They stumble upon the very core of Japanese plans for world economic conquest, but are frustrated in their attempts to divulge them.
Apparently no one can stop the Japanese as long as their secret plan, the Fuji Agenda, remains unknown and unrevealed for what it is. The stakes are monumental for the Japanese and U.S. alike.
Developed gradually, the plot becomes increasingly involved and intriguing until its shocking conclusion, one which will leave the reader wondering, “Is this true, or is it fiction?”
