The winner of several major awards... the solution is one of the most original that I've ever read' Anthony HorowitzA bestselling and internationally-acclaimed masterpiece of the locked-room mystery genreJapan, 1936.

Shortly afterwards, the plan is carried out: the women are found dismembered and buried across rural Japan. By 1979, these Tokyo Zodiac Murders have been obsessing a nation for decades, but not one of them has been solved.

A mystery-obsessed illustrator and a talented astrologer set off around the country - and you follow, carrying the enigma of the Zodiac murderer through madness, missed leads and magic tricks.
