Blue Light Yokohama by Nicolás Obregón

Setagaya ward, Tokyo

Inspector Kosuke Iwata, newly transferred to Tokyo’s homicide department, is assigned a new partner and a secondhand case.

Blunt, hard as nails and shunned by her colleagues, Assistant Inspector Noriko Sakai is a partner Iwata decides it would be unwise to cross.

A case that’s complicated – a family of four murdered in their own home by a killer who then ate ice cream, surfed the web and painted a hideous black sun on the bedroom ceiling before he left in broad daylight.  A case that so haunted the original investigator that he threw himself off the city’s famous Rainbow Bridge.

Carrying his own secret torment, Iwata is no stranger to pain.  He senses the trauma behind the killer’s brutal actions.  Yet his progress is thwarted in the unlikeliest of places.

Fearing corruption among his fellow officers, tracking a killer he’s sure is only just beginning and trying to put his own shattered life back together, Iwata knows time is running out before he’s taken off the case or there are more killings…

Inspired by the still unsolved murder of a Japanese family in 2000, Blue Light Yokohama is an original and gripping crime debut

Peer & Press Reviews

This beautifully written debut takes readers on a captivating and atmospheric journey around Tokyo with plenty of twists to keep them gripped until the epic conclusion.

Daily Express

Obregón is a bright, sophisticated new voice in crime fiction: his writing sings at you, reverberates, makes you consider more than just the urgent clamour of his novel’s well-hewn murder plot.  In Inspector Iwata, he has created a quiet, troubled hero whom readers will be sure to follow from one disturbing, atmospheric story to the next.

Benjamin Wood, author of The Ecliptic

With its Japanese setting and characters, Blue Light Yokohama offers up a bold and refreshingly different take on the serial killer tale.

Simon Beckett, author of the David Hunter series
