When reclusive photographer Rob Fossick’s mother dies, he is presented with an intriguing problem to solve – minutes before her death, he discovers that she was hoping to deliver a package to an enigmatic character called Mr Satoshi. So begins a quest that plunges him into the urban maelstrom of Tokyo. With the help of an octogenarian amateur detective; a beautiful ‘love hotel’ receptionist; and an ex-sumo wrestler obsessed with Dolly Parton, Rob edges closer to uncovering the mystery surrounding Mr Satoshi, and comes face to face with some demons of his own.
I believe this is Jonathan Lee's debut novel, and I therefore had no expectations.
I thought it a delicious story of loss, love and discovery and most beautifully narrated by Peter Wickham with his elegantly soothing voice.
I thoroughly recommend this book and cannot wait to read Lee's second novel...
