MEDIA REVIEWS
'Full of subtly menacing tensions and sharp psychological insights, told in lean, sparsely ornamented style. This one is a must for the discerning reader.' - Kirkus

'Long established in Japan, [Togawa's] books have benefited from sensitive translation to enjoy a well-deserved second life.' - Daily Mail

'The PD James of Japan.' - Times Literary Supplement

'There's a great and distinct timbre to this book ... it certainly has the cleverness ultimately to keep a genre reader really satisfied.' - The Bookbag

"Even when you think you know just where the book is headed... you don't... Thoroughly enjoyable." - David's Book World
