In the wake of a deadly disaster, Tokyo Metropolitan Police Detective Kenji Nakamura and English translator Yumi Hata suspect a killer has seized a perfect opportunity to commit the perfect crime. After an earthquake strikes Tokyo on the day of Yumi's wedding, her marriage plans are reduced to rubble. But when the dust settles, it's discovered that the reason the priest was late is because he was dead. Detective Kenji Nakamura is assigned to investigate, but although all clues point to one of Japan's most idolized pop stars as the prime suspect, he knows that's impossible--the idol and her band were swept away in the tsunami following the quake. Will Yumi and Kenji be able to act in time to catch a killer who's desperate to protect a secret that will rock the Japanese entertainment industry more powerfully than any earthquake? Like the other books in the intriguing Only in Tokyo mystery series, Idolmaker takes you behind closed doors into corners of Japan where few foreigners dare to go, and introduces you to fascinating characters you won't soon forget.
