    Tokyo. 2020.

    As Japan prepares to host the Olympic Games an English exchange student is bludgeoned to death in a love hotel. She lies in an empty room with only a dead spider for morbid company. Could this be a calling card from her killer?

    The world's eyes are on the Tokyo Homicide Department and Commissioner Shindo is desperate for a lead. Before his department descends into disarray he summons his old protégé, Kosuke Iwata.

    But Iwata wants no part in an investigation that means stepping back into a past he had no intention of revisiting. Until he is given an offer he can't refuse.

    Black Suit City is a novel of lies, power and deadly obsession. As Iwata attempts to uncover a city's darkest secrets he encounters old ghosts and new whispering from its hidden corners.
