The Foreign Intrigue Book Club will discuss The Aosawa Murders (Paperback) by Riku Onda
May 2021 Selection:
"In the 1960s 17 people die of cyanide poisoning at a large party at the Aosawas, owners of a prominent clinic in an ancient castle city on the coast of the Sea of Japan. The only survivor is their teenage daughter Hisako, blind, beautiful, admired by all, but soon suspected of masterminding the crime"
“The hot and humid atmosphere of the coastal town almost becomes a character in itself. The fascinating result is rich and strange, utterly absorbing. Onda makes you aware of ‘another, different world below the surface of this one’.” Times London
