A dizzying tale of lust and murder, from one of Japan’s greatest mystery writers.
A hunter prowls the night spots of Shinjuku
But he’s the one walking into a trap…
Ichiro Honda leads a double life: by day a devoted husband and a diligent worker, by night he moves through the shadow world of Tokyo’s cabaret bars and nightclubs in search of vulnerable women to seduce and then abandon. But when a trail of bodies seems to appear in his wake, the hunter becomes the prey and Ichiro realises he has been caught in a snare. Has he left it too late to free himself before time runs out?
