Japan’s most popular crime novelist, says the blurb, and I believe it. Zipped through this, even waking up early this morning just so I could finish the final 25 pages! A desperate housewife kills her gambling, philandering husband and her workmates help her dispose of the body. Things start to go wrong almost immediately with their plan, but Kirino keeps the twists coming, until you feel sympathy for nearly everybody. Also a good examination of the underclass of Japanese society and the squeezed middle class.
