About this title

Synopsis:

Student Grey Hutchins comes to Tokyo seeking answers to what happened during the notorious Nanking Massacre in which, in one city, the Imperial Japanese Army killed up to 300,000 civilians. Only one man can help her, a survivor of the Massacre, and now a visiting professor at the prestigious university of Todai in Tokyo; a man who is rumoured to possess documentary evidence of Nanking. But first Grey must gain his trust. Increasingly desperate and alone, she accepts a job as a hostess at the 'Some Like It Hot' club, an upmarket nightspot catering for Japanese businessmen and wealthy gangsters. One gangster dominates - and old man in a wheelchair guarded by a nurse with sharpened teeth - said to rely on a powerful elixir for his continued wealth and well-being; It is an elixir which other members of the club want for themselves - at any price...With its focus on 1980's Tokyo and China in the late 1930s, and a woman who has quite a lot to prove and even more to hide, this is a literary thriller of the highest order. With its heady atmosphere of overt violence, lurking fear and sexual tension, Tokyo is a novel that takes hold of the reader and does not let go until its explosive final pages.

From the Back Cover:

"Dazzling... extremely creepy book... the diabolically gifted British author spins a fascinating mystery from the legacy of Japanese atrocities during World War II (A)."
?Entertainment Weekly

"A haunting, lyrical, disturbing, important, suspenseful, wonderfully written and beautiful book."
?Harlan Coben
