Publisher's Summary

Six Four. The nightmare no parent could endure. The case no detective could solve. The twist no listener could predict.
For five days in January 1989, the parents of a seven-year-old Tokyo schoolgirl sat and listened to the demands of their daughter's kidnapper. They would never learn his identity. They would never see their daughter again.
For the 14 years that followed, the Japanese public listened to the police's apologies. They would never forget the botched investigation that became known as Six Four. They would never forgive the authorities their failure. For one week in late 2002, the press officer attached to the police department in question confronted an anomaly in the case.
He could never imagine what he would uncover. He would never have looked if he'd known what he would find.

Good story, poor narrator

The story in Six Four picks up fast, and keeps moving. The characters are well-drawn, often surprising. But the narrator, and in particular the way he voices the protagonist, are extremely off-putting, making it very difficult to bond in any way with the story or the protagonist. Too bad, for sure, because I think there is more subtlety of characterization than comes across in the audio version.

A Slow, Worthwhile Story

Six Four is not a thriller, or even a mystery. Oh, there is a mystery within the various subplots, but it isn't the core focus.

No, Six Four is an in depth look into the police force in Japan, as seen by the head of Media Relations. It is actually more interesting than it sounds, but don't go in expecting bang zoom action. This is a novel about reflection, examination and duty.

I recommend it, but with a reminder that Six Four is a slow, deep crawl.
