People Who Eat Darkness: The True Story of a Young Woman Who Vanished From the Streets of Tokyo
The Pequod Review:
People Who Eat Darkness investigates the case of a 21-year-old British woman who in 2000 disappeared into the Tokyo night and was never seen again. The story is a gripping one, and Richard Lloyd Parry constructs a detailed and well-researched timeline of events. However, despite some hints at broader themes — e.g., the “sleaziness and elegance” of the Roppongi streets, the cynical Japanese media, and the ill-prepared Tokyo police force — the book isn’t really about much more than the crime itself.
