From the Author:

The story behind The Salaryman's Wife
I wrote my first mystery novel while working as an English teacher in the Yokohama area. I had the time of my life hanging out with wonderfully funny, kind Japanese friends and diverse gaijin who gave me the perfect motivation for...murder!

I live in the US now, but the best thing about writing a mystery series set in Japan is I can visit annually to research everything from police procedure to the rising cost of my and Rei's favorite canned drink, Pocari Sweat. Rei will be back in July 1998 in a sequel called ZEN ATTITUDE.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 178 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Japanese-American Rei Shimura is a 27-year-old English teacher living in one of Tokyo s seediest neighborhoods. She doesn t make much money, but she wouldn t go back home to California even if she had a free ticket (which, thanks to her parents, she does.) Her independence is threatened however, when a getaway to an ancient castle town is marred by murder. Rei is the first to find the beautiful wife of a high-powered businessman, dead in the snow. Taking charge, as usual, Rei searches for clues by crashing a funeral, posing as a bar-girl, and somehow ending up pursued by police and paparazzi alike. In the meantime, she manages to piece together a strange, ever-changing puzzle-one that is built on lies and held together by years of sex and deception. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780061044434
