Justin Cartwright…an extraordinary and highly original crime novel, based on a notorious true-life poisoning of bank workers in occupied Tokyo in 1948. Peace's high aim is to combine something of the conventions and rhythms of traditional Shinto storytelling with an investigation of the actual killings, as well as what lay behind them…this is a truly remarkable work. It is hugely daring, utterly irresistible, deeply serious and unlike anything I have ever read.
