Naturally I considered all the deadly possibilities when I was working on the plot for Idolmaker, but I hope you won’t be disappointed if I reveal that the murder weapon is NOT A SNAKE. It was something rather unusual, though, and I hope you nip over to the sneak peek and get hooked enough to find out!
Part-time English translator Yumi Hata and Tokyo Police Detective Kenji Nakamura team up again, picking up where they left off after Nightshade and Fallen Angel. But no worries, you can dive right into this one, even if you haven’t read the others! This time, there are a few new twists…
Read a novel set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
