2.0 out of 5 stars Japanese mystery, 29 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Honeymoon to Nowhere (Soho crime) (Paperback)
Etsuko Ogata's father is a respected attorney and is concerned about Etsuko's future. When one of his junior partners asks for Etsuko's hand in marriage, he encourages the match. Etsuko, however, has other plans. She has become enamored of a shy university lecturer whom her family disapproves because of the young man's father's criminal record. She lies to her parents, telling them she is pregnant, and they relent, considering the circumstances. On their honeymoon night the groom receives a phone call, leaves the hotel room, and never returns. His body is found the next day. In this mystery written in the early 60's and translated from the Japanese, the protagonist is State Prosecutor Kirishima who uses classic detective procedures to discover the killer. However, the dialog and minutiae are such to drag the story to a snail's pace. Akimitsu Takagi was born in 1920. After careers in medicine and metallurgy, he was told by a fortune teller that he would write a novel. After 15 published mysteries and winning Japan's highest mystery award, he died in 1995.
