Product description


Japan-set noir doesn't get any darker or more twisted than this (Sunday Times Crime Club)

The plotting is impressively done. It's a brilliant novel and a fitting end to a brilliant trilogy (NB Magazine)

Obregón is the most atmospheric of writers and evokes local landscapes and moods with diamond-like as well as dreamy precision and the three simultaneous plots advance with clockwork-like and relentless efficiency and won't allow the reader a moment's respite. A stunning achievement that should raise the author's profile to crime's Premier league or there is no justice in this world (Crime Time, Book of the Month)

An outstanding novel from start to finish, possibly the best book I've read this year. An entrancing thriller that lures you into the dark secrets of the neon streets of Tokyo. Riveting (The Courier, Book of the Week)

Praise for Nicolás Obregón (-)

Harrowing and gripping. An astute police procedural . . . Switching between LA, Mexico and Tokyo both Iwata's present and past are cleverly interwoven in a truly heart-rending climax

(Daily Express)

Fresh and convincing . . . the dialogue is worthy of the great chronicler of LA's dark side, Raymond Chandler. But really, Obregon's writing has a unique flavour all of its own, wherever his books are set (Jake Kerridge Sunday Express)

Sins as Scarlet is a searing LA crime story, as poetic as it is brutal, as tender as it is disturbing

(Tim Weaver)

Thanks to the excellent Iwata, you get a gripping mystery with a real conscience

(Sunday Sport)

In the heady tradition of Raymond Chandler and Michael Connelly, Sins as Scarlet lays bare the bruised heart and broken soul of Los Angeles. Extraordinary stuff: a diabolically clever police procedural, a wrenching character study, and a merciless chronicle of a city in decay. I'm awestruck.

(A. J. Finn, author of international bestseller THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW)

Book Description
