Reviews

Praise for Koji Suzuki: 'Suzuki blends the dispassionate, inquisitive, sometimes terrifying urban character-types to be found in Haruki Murakami's work with the plot mechanics of a Stephen King or Michael Crichton' Kim Newman, Independent 'The pace doesn't slacken for a moment ! a guaranteed page-turner.' Observer 'Suzuki builds tension brilliantly.' Guardian 'Bristles with menace and fear.' Uncut 'Aptly billed as the Japanese Stephen King.' Publishers Weekly
