Review

Praise for The Tattoo Murder Case

“Like voyeurs, we follow Takagi down the charred streets of bombed-out Tokyo to scenes of fastidiously executed decadence . . . [A] tale of sexual obsession and perversity.”
The New York Times Book Review

"The Tattoo Murder Case is 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. Introducing American audiences to great foreign mysteries (as well as unusual domestic voices) has become a Soho Press trademark, and almost everything in its catalog is top-notch. The Tattoo Murder Case is a high-water mark even by those high standards."
The A.V. Club

“Clever, kinky, highly entertaining . . . I want more.”
Washington Post Book World

“Elegant.”
 —The Seattle Times

“An engaging, refreshingly different invitation to fictional mayhem.”
Arizona Daily Star

“Intricate, fantastic and utterly absorbing. More please . . . Calculated to outdo John Dickson Carr in both ghoulishness and ingenuity.”
Kirkus Reviews
