About this book
A deeply compelling journey into the dark side of Japan, which centres on the tragic case of Lucie Blackman, the British girl who was murdered there in 2000.
In the summer of 2000, Jane Steare received the phone call every mother dreads. Her daughter Lucie Blackman - tall, blonde, and twenty-one years old - had stepped into the vastness of a Tokyo summer and disappeared forever. That winter, her dismembered remains were found buried in a seaside cave. Had Lucie been abducted by a religious cult?
