Six Four by Hideo Yokoyama

THE NIGHTMARE NO PARENT COULD ENDURE.
THE CASE NO DETECTIVE COULD SOLVE.
THE TWIST NO READER COULD PREDICT.

For five days in January 1989, the parents of a seven-year-old Tokyo schoolgirl sat and listened to the demands of their daughter’s kidnapper.  They would never learn his identity.  They would never see their daughter again.

For the fourteen years that followed, the Japanese public listened to the police’s apologies.  They would never forget the botched investigation that became known as ‘Six Four’.  They would never forgive the authorities their failure.

For one week in late 2002, the press officer attached to the police department in question confronted an anomaly in the case.  He could never imagine what he would uncover.  He would never have looked if he’d known what he would find.

Peer & Press Reviews

Not only is Six Four an addictive read, it is an education about Japan, its police and its society, and simply one of the best crime novels I have ever read.

David Peace, author of the Red Riding Quartet

A classic plot about a decent cop painstakingly uncovering corruption suddenly turns into one of the most remarkable revenge dramas in modern detective fiction.

Sunday Times

Crime fiction aficionados constantly search for the next big thing, and this remarkable epic may just fit the bill.  It is like nothing you have ever read in the genre, told in a narrative voice that is truly unique.

Barry Forshaw, author of Crime Uncovered: Detective
