The suicide of a young woman and the death of a top executive have the police scrambling to find the connection that leads to murder in the sensational sleuth mystery, Tokyo Zangyo (Detective Hiroshi Series: Book 4) by author Michael Pronko. Homicide Detective Hiroshi arrives at the headquarters of Senden Infinity, where the body of Onizuka, one of their executives, is splattered all over their sidewalk. Hiroshi and his co-investigators must determine whether or not Onizuka committed suicide. Soon a connection between Onizuka's demise and the suicide of Mayu, his former employee, is established. Mayu's friends, family, and co-workers blame Onizuka's harassment and overtime as the cause for Mayu taking her life. The deeper Hiroshi investigates Onizuka's personal life, the more complicated the case becomes. Was his death an act of revenge? Or was it guilt?
Immersed in Japanese culture, Tokyo Zangyo (Detective Hiroshi Series: Book 4) by Michael Pronko is a riveting murder mystery that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Brilliantly portraying the city, its people, and its culture, Mr. Pronko has skillfully captured the essence of Tokyo. Splendidly depicted, the metropolis, the characters, and the cultural lifestyles and traditions came to life. The story is impeccably written, with a stunning and deeply involved plot, an incredible setting, and extraordinary characters. With all of its twists and turns, the story gradually builds momentum until it finally culminates into an astonishing conclusion. Even though Tokyo Zangyo is the fourth book in a series, it is a fantastic stand-alone read too, and I highly recommend it to everyone who relishes sleuth mysteries with enigmatic detectives.
