Product description

Synopsis

The Chilling Search for a Missing Torso Leads to a Dark Erotic Secret; A gripping murder mystery in the style of S S Van Dine and John Dickson Carr; Kinue Nimora survived World War II only to be murdered in Tokyo, her severed limbs being all that is left behind when she is discovered in a locked bathroom. Gone is her torso which bore one of the most beautiful full-body tattoos ever created by her late father, a highly controversial artist. Kenzo Matsushita, a young doctor, must assist his detective brother who is in charge of the case, because he was Kinue's secret lover and the first person on the murder scene.
