Description

‘An absolute corker of a read — so brilliantly shrouded in mystery that it was impossible to put it down’ Lisa Hall, author of Between You and MeA perfectly plotted, cosy detective story from Seicho Matsumoto, Japan’s master of mystery ‘It was a puzzle with no solution.

But he did not lose heart.’ In a rocky cove in the bay of Hakata, the bodies of a young and beautiful couple are discovered.

Stood in the coast’s wind and cold, the police see nothing to investigate: the flush of the couple’s cheeks speaks clearly of cyanide, of a lovers’ suicide.

But in the eyes of two men, Torigai Jutaro, a senior detective, and Kiichi Mihara, a young gun from Tokyo, something is not quite right.

Together, they begin to pick at the knot of a unique and calculated crime… Now widely available in English for the first time, Tokyo Express is celebrated around the world as Seicho Matsumoto’s masterpiece – and as one of the most fiendish puzzles ever written.
