about this book

Tokyo, 2011. An unknown terrorist group has destroyed an iconic landmark in the Japanese capital, signaling the start of a series of attacks that the group’s enigmatic leader promises will culminate in a “Final Event” -- a massacre of unprecedented proportions. With no leads to work with aside from the ingeniously devised detonators used in the first bombing, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police is forced to contemplate the grim possibility of international terrorists targeting Japan, but one detective has a hunch that the perpetrators are to be found much closer to home…

Part psychological thriller, part fantasy horror, A Caring Man is film producer and author Akira Arai’s richly imagined exploration of violence and social ennui -- tale filled with compellingly drawn characters that offers a unique glimpse into the dark heart of modern Japanese society.

“From its structure to its theme and execution, everything about this novel is modern. It is entertainment in its purest form, and the perfect thematic match for our times. It deserves to win a literary prize.” -- Kanjiro Sakura, producer of Inception
