Praise for Cult X

“Gripping . . . This noirish thriller will resonate with Ryu Murakami fans.”
—Publishers Weekly

“At its heart [Cult X] is an investigation—first for a lost woman, but ultimately into humanity’s darkest motivations and the temptation to follow them.” 
—The Sunday Times

Praise for Fuminori Nakamura

“Crime fiction that pushes past the bounds of genre, occupying its own nightmare realm . . . Guilt or innocence is not the issue; we are corrupted, complicit, just by living in society.”
Los Angeles Times

“A suspenseful study of obsession . . . Love, even illicit love, has a way of bringing out the best or the worst in a person.”
The New York Times

“Few protagonists in modern crime fiction are as alienated as those in the challenging, violent, grotesque tales of Japanese author Fuminori Nakamura.”
The Wall Street Journal

“This slim, icy, outstanding thriller, reminiscent of Muriel Spark and Patricia Highsmith, should establish Fuminori Nakamura as one of the most interesting Japanese crime novelists at work today.”
USA Today
