People Who Eat Darkness by Richard Lloyd Parry
The book is written by a British journalist stationed in Tokyo who covered the case. It gives extensive details of the hostess trade, the lives of the women involved, the character of the men who frequent them, the turmoil of Lucie's family and the inner workings of the police department. In this instance, once a suspect was apprehended the case took an astounding 6 years to work its way through the Japanese legal system. This book is more than just a tale of a horrific murder and a surreal trial. It is a warning to be wary of situations that seem to good to be true.
