Publisher's Summary

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 for 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.

Thoughtful, Subtle,Complicated Mystery

What did you love best about Six Four?

This is a mystery that does not follow the typical who-done-it formula. Hideo Yokoyama's Japanese perspective keeps the story intriguing through multiple plot turns and fascinating, contemplative characters.

A real slog

The book is too long. Yokoyama's exploration of the innards of the Japanese police bureaucracy gets boring after a couple hours. He needs an editor--cut to the chase.
