February on AustCrime

February, in which lots of books were read and reviewed, but it would have been more if it wasn't for the scorching heat.

#amreading Six Four, Hideo Yokoyama

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Dear reader, you may know of my love of Japanese crime fiction.

From the Blurb:

SIX FOUR. 
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.
