About This Item

New York:: Alfred A. Knopf,, 2007.. Very near fine in printed red wrappers with the dust jacket cover art bound in. An uncommon advance issue. . Uncorrected proof (trade paperback format. ) Fictionalized account of the hunt for the "Japanese Bluebeard," a serial killer responsible for the deaths of 10 women in 1946, the first year after the surrender of Japan. A vivid picture of the corruption and confusion in post-World War II, bombed-out, American-occupied Tokyo. Introduces Detective Minami. Author's note, glossary, sources. 355 pp.


It's August 1946--one year after the Japanese surrender--and women are turning up dead all over Tokyo. Detective Minami of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police--irreverent, angry, despairing--goes on the hunt for a killer known as the Japanese Bluebeard--a decorated former Imperial soldier who raped and murdered at least ten women amidst the turmoil of post-war Tokyo. As he undertakes the case, Minami is haunted by his own memories of atrocities that he can no longer explain or forgive. Unblinking in its vision of a nation in a chaotic, hellish period in its history, Tokyo Year Zero is a darkly lyrical and stunningly original crime novel.From the Trade Paperback edition.

About, IOBA

This is our 28th year in business. We started selling books in the CompuServe Book Collecting forum in 1993, quite a while before there was any commercial Internet. In 1998 we relocated our main business from Sacramento to the Sierra foothills of Amador County, about 35 miles east of downtown Sacramento and opened a store (called Books Upstairs) at the Antiques Upstairs Mall, 5 Main Street, Jackson, CA. (open every day from 10-5) The emphasis there is on Western Americana, children's books, mysteries, science fiction, and inexpensive reading copies of classics and vintage juvenile series. Please let us know if there are any other books you are looking for; we enjoy helping collectors complete their collection and we can often suggest books for reading! .
