Format: Mass Market Paperback
In terms of thrillers, this is a top-notch book. I loved it. And if there is one thing Mo Hayder does well, it is keep you turning pages. She never gives up the secrets of the book until the bitter end. And she manages the pace of the story so well. I never once got bored. I never once didn't care about the outcome. I just wanted to know the secrets, and I wanted to read it and read it until I was done.This book deserves the same amount of attention as the DiVinci code. In fact, in my eyes, it is quite a bit better than the DiVinci Code. The writing is way above your average thriller fare. The plot is great. Location. Great original characters. It just has it all. I can't say enough good things about this book.

I have read Hayder's other books with painful pleasure, but this newest release takes her writing to a completely different level. It is a dark tale of the walking wounded, obsession, and culture. Her characters are marvelously complex, and her writing is dark yet crystalline. Mo Hayder deserves to be among the best of our fiction writers. A chilling masterpiece.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A young Englishwoman name Grey while in Tokyo tries to find out whether a piece of 16mm film taken during the 1937 Nanking atrocities actually exits. Increasingly desperate, she accepts a job in a night club as a hostess that caters to Japanese businessmen. While there she acquires information from a patron who may be the key to gaining the trust of the only man that can help her: he is an elderly professor, and a survivor of the massacre. The story quickly becomes a three-way dual... and Grey is about to unearth the horror that links the present with the past.

The author alternates between the present-day narrative and excerpts from the professor's journal written at the time of the massacre. I found it difficult to adjust to this style at first. The story is a very disturbing and intriguing one; it peaks ones interest into China's dark past. This novel is definitely worth taking the time to read.

I'll state my bias up front. I'm a big fan of Mo Hayder's writing. So then it should come as no surprise that I quite enjoyed this book.

Hayder does a fantastic job of conjuring up the look and feel of Tokyo while weaving in a bit of mysticism. The plot ticks along at a good clip. The writing style is descriptive and there are enough twists and turns of the plot to keep the reader on their toes.

If you're looking for a good 'thriller' type of novel, this one's for you.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I haven't yet read a book by Mo Hayder that I could put down for very long. She builds her stories expertly and they're full of suspense. This historial fiction about Nanking is a sad, scary, suspenseful tale about China's history when invaded by Japan, referred to as The Nanking Massacre or the Rape of Nanking. I could not put the book down and highly recommend this author.
