Product Details


A COP’S EYES by Gaku Yakumaru is a book for those who like something a bit different in their crime fiction…. If A COP’S EYES fits into a genre slot, it is police procedural in that it follows the work of detective Natsume, a quiet, gentle man who moved into policing after working in a reformatory for troubled children. But here any link to the traditional police procedural ends…. Natsume believes in justice and the law, but this is a justice tempered with a very human mercy and understanding…. There is an air of fable about the stories as Yakumaru sets up the situation, introduces us to the players and then to the crime, before Natsume’s ‘cop’s eyes’ observe the situation. He is sometimes cast almost in a minor role, but his are the eyes, the ones that can see the whole picture, and set the crime in its context. He is the one who can, finally, reveal the killer.”
