Praise

Praise for The Informer

“Intricate . . . The reader is left in suspense until the end.”
The Washington Post Book World

“Takagi’s just-the-facts-ma’am pace brings us swiftly to a clever and surprising conclusion.”
—The Wall Street Journal

“There are many webs and one or more deadly spiders spinning them in this intricate tale of deceit and murder.”
—Publishers Weekly

The Informer . . . offers the reader an intriguing insight into life in a post-World War II Japan.”
—Crimespree

Praise for Akimitsu Takagi

“A delightful, different book, not only because of its unusual setting and premise, but because Takagi is a powerful plotter and constructor of fascinating, complex characters.”
The A.V. Club

“Takagi’s factional environment is reminiscent of the postwar photos of Tadahiko Hayashi, who captured telling images of demobbed soldiers, bars set up on garbage pits, bicycle rickshaws, smoking street waifs and striptease joints. More than a mere novel, Takagi has left us a document of the times.”
—The Japan Times

“Intricate, fantastic, and utterly absorbing. More, please.”
Kirkus Reviews
