As Iwata investigates, it becomes clear that these murders by the Black Sun Killer are not the first, nor the last, attached to that symbol. As he tries to track down the history of the black sun symbol, puzzle out the motive for the crime, and connect this to other murders, Iwata finds himself racing another clock - the superiors who are trying to have him removed for good. Haunted by his own past, his inability to sleep, and a song, "Blue Light Yokohama", Iwata is at the center of a compelling, brilliantly moody, layered audiobook sure to be one of the most talked about debuts in 2017.

drowns in cliches
Japan seems to mostly serve as an exotic backdrop for this crime story that is one cliche after another. All the detective cliches AND all the cliches about Japan, that is.
It's almost like the writer had a list and was checking boxes while writing.
The characters often behave very unjapanese, which should be clear to anybody who has had more than superficial contact with them.
The story, and especially the side stories/flashbacks become tedious after a while.
And I have to admit I didn't make the end of the book.
If you want a standard crime novel with an exotic backdrop and nothing else, you might like this. If you're looking for something more I'm afraid you'll be disappointed.
