A serial killer in Japan is chopping off heads. An unlikely pair of journalists try not to lose theirs.
Being a photographer at a Tokyo newspaper is no walk in the park - unless you're Akio Tsukino and only get assigned to shoot parades and park festivals. All that changes when a serial killer starts chopping off heads in nearby Kofu. Akio maneuvers his way onto the assignment in order to prove himself and get closer to enigmatic staff writer Masami Sato.
When the investigation takes a supernatural turn, the unlikely partners find themselves caught between solving the mystery and saving their own lives.
In this thrilling and imaginative debut by Tristram Lowe, getting the story may cost them their heads.
I was worried that the Author narrated his own book because normally that leads to a monotone story read. However in this case I was pleasantly surprised at the superb narration skills of the Author. The story itself was a mystery with paranormal elements that was fast paced and thought provoking. The characters were in depth and there was a slight comedic undertone that I liked very much. The narration was easy to understand with distinct character voices. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to more from this Author.
