Reviews

Brilliantly original and chilling - David MorrellThink of CONFESSIONS as the Gone Girl of Japan....[A] gut-wrenching thrill ride...its thrust should hit home for any reader with a pulse. - Los Angeles TimesA dark, dystopic portrait of Japanese adolescence gone wrong. If Albert Camus had written Heathers, it would have looked a lot like this. - Alex MarwoodExplosive... A dark thriller about love, despair and murder - Irish TatlerA creepy and mesmerizing psychological thriller that challenges the conventions of right vs. wrong, good vs. evil, and law vs. justice. - Library JournalA spellbinding read, a fascinating peek into modern Japanese society, and a glimpse into the dark corners of the human psyche - BooklistTaut, unsettling and relentlessly engaging, CONFESSIONS is a book with claws, in more sense than one. I defy any fan of smart, unconventional crime writing to set this novel aside once they've started it. - Simon Lelic
