  • Well Written Translated Crime Fiction

    The Lady Killer finds and seduces women in bars and nightclubs. His targets are usually beautiful .. and lonely. For the most part, these women are one night stands. He is a master at disguise. He is also married to a woman he can no longer bear to look at. His forays into the nightlife of Tokyo is what he lives for. When a woman he 'dated' jumps to her death it makes the news. He barely remembers her name. What the news didn't report was that she was 6 months pregnant. When investigated, they put manner of death as a suicide. But was it? There are more women he has been with ... One by one they are murdered .. strangled and left to be easily found. Did he black out and kill them? All the evidence points directly to him .... This is a well written and translated crime fiction. The Lady Killer is a stand out character. The story line is a good one and easy to follow as the reader is privy to the Killer's thoughts and actions. There are twists and turns and an ending that was not only explosive, but a huge surprise. THE LADY KILLER was first published in Japanese in 1963. The first English translation was published in 1986. Masako Togawa (1931-2016) was born in Tokyo. She died in 2016 at the age of 83. Many thanks to Pushkin Vertigo / Netgalley / Edelweiss for the digital copy of this crime fiction. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
