She knows very little about the organisation she's working for and is perfectly satisfied with the arrangement, as long as it means she doesn't have to reveal anything about her identity. But when a figure from Yurika's past emerges, she finds herself in a trap that she can’t seem to find a way out of....

Critic Reviews

"Some of the darkest noir fiction to come out of Japan or any country in recent years.... Nakamura’s stories, however labelled, are memorable forays into uncomfortable terrain." (Mystery Scene)
"This slim, icy, outstanding thriller, reminiscent of Muriel Spark and Patricia Highsmith, should establish Fuminori Nakamura as one of the most interesting Japanese crime novelists at work today." (USA Today)
