About This Item

New York: Soho Press. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 2003. First US Edition. Hardcover. 257 pages. When the Tokyo stock market crashes, adultery and industrial espionage lead to murder. Segawa had a good job as a stock market trader, but the "private" hedge fund he operated suffered big losses and he was fired. He is down and out when he is approached with an offer of highly paid work. How can he resist? He agrees to become an industrial spy, even when he discovers the target is his old schoolmate-who married Segawa's girlfriend-and his company. Ogino, the old friend, is murdered, and Segawa seems to have been the last person to visit him. He panics, fakes an easily disproved alibi, then tries to flee. He would seem to be the obvious culprit. Who else could have done it? The widow? Segawa's other girlfriend? The dead man's uncle or some of the other ambitious directors of the company? Ogino's secretary, who happens to be his greedy sister's lover? State Prosecutor Kirishima must solve a baffling crime to save Segawa from hanging for a murder he did not commit. The Informer, based on a real incident, was a runaway bestseller in Japan when it was published in 1965. .
