Synopsis of this title

British student, 'Grey', is obsessed with a past she cannot understand. She comes to Tokyo following rumours of a rare piece of film footage shot during the notorious Nanking Massacre in 1937. The film, if it exists, has been lost for decades. Only one man can help: Shi Chongming, now a visiting professor at the prestigious university of Tokyo , is a survivor of the massacre and holds the key to Grey's search. But will he help her? Increasingly desperate in an alien city where she knows no one, Grey accepts a job as a hostess in an upmarket nightspot catering for Japanese businessmen and wealthy gangsters. One gangster dominates. An old man in a wheelchair guarded by a terrifying entourage, he is rumoured to rely on a powerful elixir for his continued health. It is an elixir that others want for themselves – at any price.

Reviews of this title


Mo Hayder's TOKYO is a haunting, lyrical, disturbing, important, suspenseful, wonderfully written and beautiful book that lingers long after you turn the final page. You will love reading it, and you will not soon forget the experience.' Harlan Coben

'The very best thing a writer can do is to thoroughly and completely immerse the reader in a strange new world. Mo Hayder does it to perfection with Tokyo. This book is deeply felt and haunting. It is elegiac and important. Most of all, it sticks with you well after the last page is turned.' Michael Connelly

'TOKYO left me stunned and haunted. This is writing of breathtaking power and poetry. I stand in awe of Mo Hayder's incomparable gifts as a storyteller.' Tess Gerritsen

'Tokyo catapults Mo Hayder into the front rank of contemporary thriller writers. Compassionate and cataclysmic, stylish and scary, TOKYO is as finely judged a thriller as you'll read this year.' Val McDermid

'In-freaking-credible. With the TREATMENT, Mo Hayder cemented her reputation as one of Britain's preeminent crime writers. TOKYO jackhammers her to the top of the field. This is the epic thriller of the year.' Karin Slaughter

'A real page-turner, full of suspense, with a terrifying, gritty edge that turns the blood cold.' Minette Walters
