Did I miss something? I read this novel like a sleepy dialogue one person had about his relatives...I didn't get a 'thrill' at all.?

Absolutely gripping police procedural. Perfect on plot, setting & characters. At the heart of the story is a question 'How far will you go to get the fancy lifestyle you want but could never earn enough to support?'. Received a starred review from Publishers Weekly.

This is a enthralling mystery that will keep you reading until the last page, there is terrific characters you will feel you know and the whole feel of the story will haunt you .
This is not a book about the samuri. anime pop stars, salary men, all the standards of many novels This is a book about a side of Japanese life we rarely heard about. The owners of small beauty salons, five seat bars and tiny busineses. This is the story about everyday people in Japan just trying to get by. Mind you "Japan" still get in. How often in the West do you get a souvenier photo for pricing burial plots? Or have to worry about your family registration? Great book.
