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
