This monthâ€™s book will beÂ Tokyo Year Zero. Read the Amazon description below:
It’s August 1946â€”one year after the Japanese surrenderâ€”and women are turning up dead all over Tokyo. Detective Minami of the Tokyo Metropolitan Policeâ€”irreverent, angry, despairingâ€”goes on the hunt for a killer known as the Japanese Bluebeardâ€”a decorated former Imperial soldier who raped and murdered at least ten women amidst the turmoil of post-war Tokyo. As he undertakes the case, Minami is haunted by his own memories of atrocities that he can no longer explain or forgive. Unblinking in its vision of a nation in a chaotic, hellish period in its history,Tokyo Year ZeroÂ is a darkly lyrical and stunningly original crime novel.
