Reviews

An extraordinary, compulsive and brilliant book...very, very moving -- David Peace
Difficult to put down... impossible to forget -- Minette Walters
A skilful, definitive history of one of the most notorious crimes of the past decade * Sunday Times *
This is In Cold Blood for our times... Everyone who has ever loved someone and held that life dear should read this stunning book, and shiver -- Chris Cleave
Open-minded and sympathetic, despite being driven half mad by the case, Parry, former Asia correspondent for the Independent and The Times, is the best kind of narrator of a tale that isn't just a murder case but a book that sheds light on Japan, on families, on the media, and on the insidious effects of misogyny -- Blake Morrison * Guardian *
