English Summary/英文概要： Grey Hutchins is in pursuit of an obsession. She is searching for a piece of film taken during the infamous Nanking massacre of 1937. Some say it never existed. Grey is certain that it does, and that it lies hidden – somewhere in Tokyo.
Alone in an alien city, Grey becomes a hostess in an exclusive club catering for Japanese businessmen – and gangsters. One gangster dominates: an ancient man in a wheelchair rumoured to rely on a powerful elixir for his continued health.
It is an elixir that other people want - at any price...

“Horrors of the past are gradually revealed in this thriller about the recall of Japanese atrocities in World War II.”---Editor’s Choice – New York Times Book Review
“A real page-turner, full of suspense, with a terrifying, gritty edge that turns the blood cold.”---Minette Walters 米涅‧渥特絲
“What a story – what a storyteller!”---當今英國備受尊崇的推理作家柯林．德克斯特Colin Dexter，著有《最後的衣著》
“The very best thing a writer can do is to thoroughly and completely immerse the reader in a strange new world. Mo Hayder does it to perfection with TOKYO. This book is deeply felt and haunting. It is elegiac and important. Most of all, it sticks with you well after the last page is turned.”----Michael Connelly 邁可‧康納利
“I have finished the novel and am still in shock. In all of my 60+ years, I have never read a book that pulls me in so skillfully. The words the author used to create fear in the reader are so vivid, I’m not only still in awe, but I may have nightmares for weeks. This may be the one book that I refer to when I’m writing and need a reminder of how to crisply, pointedly use words to create fear and loathing!SUCH a good read. Thank you to Mo Hayder. Wish I’d found it years earlier.”---Marge Petesch, Reader
“Mo Hayder’s TOKYO is a terrific novel -- a haunting, lyrical, disturbing, important, suspenseful, wonderfully written and beautiful book. I still have goosebumps from that last paragraph. TOYKO is a novel that lingers long after you turn the final page. You will love reading it, and you will not soon forget the experience.”---Harlan Coben
