Publisher's Summary

In the summer of 2000, Jane Steare received the phone call every mother dreads. Her daughter Lucie Blackman - tall, blonde and 21 years old - had stepped into the vastness of a Tokyo summer and disappeared forever.

That winter, her dismembered remains were found buried in a desolate seaside cave. Her disappearance was mystifying. Had Lucie been abducted by a religious cult? Who was the mysterious man she had gone to meet? What did her work, as a 'hostess' in the notorious Roppongi district of Tokyo, really involve? And could Lucie's fate be linked to the disappearance of another girl some 10 years earlier?

Over the course of a decade, Richard Lloyd Parry has travelled to four continents to interview those caught up in the story and been given unprecedented access to Lucie's bitterly divided family to reveal the astonishing truth about Lucie and her fate.

    "incredibly sad story. but gripping "

    I'd heard of Lucie naturally. But didn't really know the story behind her sad death. This book gives incredible detail about her murder and that of her assailants other victims. a truly evil individual.

    Story
    "Very chilling and disturbing story"

    This is a very disturbing story, not least because the perpetrator had money and influence to be able to avoid detection for so long. And who knows how many other unfortunates came into his clutches? Well written, well narrated (Simon Vance is my favourite narrator which is why I chose this book originally) and leaves a feeling of disconcertment.
