Product description

Review


"Miyabe's forte is suspense. . . .[the] fascination of the story lies in its acute observations of the way masochistic shame and guilt play into the social conformity so inhibiting to the Japanese identity." --The New York Times Book Review


"The Devil's Whisper is laden with brilliant plot twists throughout and explores culturally transcendent themes like betrayal, forgiveness and revenge. Mystery fans looking for something a little exotic should check it out." --The Chicago Tribune


"Miyabe excels at creating a supernatural feeling in a prosaic urban setting... Both horror fans and mystery fans will savor this spooky mystery and want to seek out Miyabe's other work." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)


"A good selection for mystery collections." --Library Journal


"The Devil's Whisper is clever and compelling, with twists and turns aplenty to keep the pages turning." --Jeff Abbott, author of Collision and Trust Me
