9780151006397: One Man's Justice

Hiroshima and Nagasaki have been destroyed. Japan is in ruins and occupied by the Americans. Takuya, an ex-officer in the Imperial Army, has returned to his native village only to learn that the Occupation authorities are intensifying their efforts to apprehend suspected war criminals. And those who are found guilty are being sentenced to death. Fearing that his role in the execution of a number of American pilots, Takuya takes to the road and becomes a fugitive in his own country. One Man's Justice is both a reflection on the murky reality of war and a page-turning novel of pursuit and escape.

Review:

* A haunting and beautifully rendered tale of enduring optimism. The Herald * Deserves to become a classic. Sunday Times * An unsettling and important book. This novel blurs any distinctions between the victor and the vanquished - Yoshimura depicts a burnt-out moral landscape, all too familiar today. Scotland on Sunday * Implacable and topical. -- Marina Warner
