Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A harrowing thriller that plumbs the hidden connections between Japans modern-day underworld and the grisliest atrocity of its wartime past

Like the thrillers of Thomas Harris and Philip Kerr, Mo Hayders riveting new novel animates the dark corners of modern history. The solitary Englishwoman Grey comes to Japan looking for a rare piece of footage that is said to document a particularly monstrous episode of the 1937 Nanking Massacre. Her quest will take her to a reclusive scholar and a wheelchair-bound gangster who clings to life with the aid of a mysterious elixir, and to a handsome American whose interest in Grey may be more sinister than romantic. The result is a work of spine-chilling suspense, masterful historical detail, and otherworldly beauty. BACKCOVER: Dazzling... extremely creepy book... the diabolically gifted British author spins a fascinating mystery from the legacy of Japanese atrocities during World War II (A).

Entertainment Weekly

A haunting, lyrical, disturbing, important, suspenseful, wonderfully written and beautiful book.
