Here is a deftly written thriller that is also a "deep and moody" (New York Times Book Review) journey through the dark side of Japan's consumer-crazed society. Ordinary people plunge into insurmountable, personal debt and fall prey to dangerous webs of underground creditors -- so dangerous, in fact, that murder may be the only way out. A beautiful young woman vanishes, and the detective quickly finds she is not whom she claimed to be. Is she a victim, a killer, or both? In a country that tracks its citizens at every turn, how can two women claim the same identity and then disappear without a trace?
