About the Author:

Arimasa Osawa was born in 1956 in Nagoya. After dropping out of Keio University, he dove head first into fiction writing, winning the First Detective Fiction Award in 1979 for his first novel, The Sentimental Street Corner. In 1991, he won the Eiji Yoshikawa Award and Japan Mystery Writers Association Award, and in 1993, the Naoki Award, all for installments in the Shinjuku Shark series.

Review:

“Samejima's compelling struggle to find the truth and the startling revelation of the killer's motive will leave most readers eager for the next book in the series to become available.” — Publishers Weekly
"A tough, taut book with loads of action. Ed McBain would love this guy. The good news is that Shinjuku Shark is the first of a series and there are plenty more to come." — The Globe and Mail
“His popular detective series, now available in English, gives hard-boiled fans and police drama enthusiasts what they are hungry for.” - Library Journal
“The series has sold like crazy in Japan and inspired a screen adaptation, and it’s not hard to see why–its pavement-level fascination with the grimy criminal underworld of Japan comes through on every page like weeds shoving through concrete.” — The Gline
“This is an engaging book that will be enjoyed by mystery fans in general and police procedural fans in particular.” — MangaCast
"Shinjuku Shark is a rich, heavily-styled crime thriller worth the wait for its debut in English... This heated, hardboiled tale maintains its satisfying mystery through the final pages." — News Review
