How To Be In Tokyo Without That Pesky Plane Flight

Veal Pen Class. It ain't pretty. I mean seriously, this was my upgrade to Economy Plus Veal Pen Class. Good thing I didn't plan on watching any movies for nine hours...
I think we can all agree that flying these days ain’t pretty. I mean seriously, can you believe this was my upgrade to Veal Pen Class Plus? Good thing I didn’t plan on watching any movies for nine hours, since I didn’t bring my binoculars grrr

What I’m really hoping is that you’re a serial book binger like me, and you’ll fly your favorite comfy armchair to Tokyo with me instead!

Here’s the new one:

“A genuinely gripping crime thriller which wrong-foots and perplexes the reader throughout, drawing us in emotionally . . . Highly recommended.” Raven Crime Reads

When Tokyo Detective Kenji Nakamura’s phone rings with the news that his mother’s death ten years ago wasn’t an accident, his world begins to unravel. New evidence links her to...read more

And, of course, there are three others. You don’t need to read the first ones in the series to enjoy Painted Doll, but if by any chance you’d like to start at the beginning, there are spanking new paperback versions of books 1, 2 & 3 out too, all guaranteed to whisk you to Tokyo without the stinky bathroom part.

Yay, finally, PAPERBACKS! Because it turns out that a lot of book lovers actually love BOOKS
I am so happy these are finally out in paperback! Because it turns out that a lot of book lovers actually love BOOKS, ha. You can browse them all here, in case you aren’t the kind of person who prefers to start bingeing a series with the first one

And just in case you’d like a little something to help you narrow down which one to tuck into first, here are the one-minute trailers:

And finally, (I can’t say this enough) the very best part about writing books & blogs set in Tokyo is that I get to cross paths with readers like you. It’s a huge pleasure to meet other people who share my love of all things Japan (with occasional bafflement). You’re the best.

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!
