Overview

Comics, beaches and college kids collide in Rei Shimura's fourth Tokyo mystery. Rei, a young American antiques buyer, thinks that writing a magazine column about the history of comic books will boost her business in Tokyo. During a weekend of relaxation at her boyfriend Takeo's beach house, she fixes on the perfect subject: an exquisite modern comic that reveals the disturbing social milieu of pre-World War II Japan. But when one of the comic's young creators is killed, Rei is drawn into Japan's youth underground. She floats through strip clubs, anime shops and coffeehouses, and ultimately, into the Pacific Ocean itself. But will she get the story before the killer gets her?

An edgy, sexy mystery with an undercurrent of humor.
