“Intricately constructed and entertainingly exotic.”—The Japan Times Astrologer, fortuneteller, and self-styled detective Kiyoshi Mitarai must in one week solve a mystery that has baffled Japan for 40 years. Who murdered the artist Umezawa, raped and killed his daughter, and then chopped up the bodies of six others to create Azoth, the supreme woman? With maps, charts, and other illustrations, this story of magic and illusion, pieced together like a great stage tragedy, challenges the reader to unravel the mystery before the final curtain. The Tokyo Zodiac Murders joins a new wave of Japanese murder mysteries being translated into English. Soji Shimada, author of over 100 mystery novels, is a designer, musician, and astrology writer. From the publisher: for more mystery from Japan, check out The Inugami Clan by Seishi Yokomizo.
