Diminutive Lieutenant Fukuie—no first name given—might not look much like a detective (“I get that a lot,” as she says), with her rimless glasses and cowlicked hair, but she serves on Tokyo Metropolitan Police’s Criminal Investigation Bureau, First Division. The murder division. When it comes to cracking cases, she can’t be beaten. From seedy bars in Tokyo’s back streets—complete with bartenders polishing glasses—to quiet sake breweries in the mountains, Fukuie’s steel-trap mind and razor instincts cut through the lies until she has the culprit trapped.
Enter Inspector Fukuie is the first volume in a series of five books (- by Jim Rion; sample translation and proposal available).
