Item description for Shinjuku Shark by Arimasa Osawa & Andrew Clare...

A serial cop-killer is running rampant in Tokyo's Shinjuku ward and only one man has the connections and the courage to find and stop him -- The Shark. Filled with volatile characters, each wiht his own unique ties, Shinjuku Shark is a masterpiece of nonstop tension.

Arimasa Osawa is one of Japan's leading hardboiled novelists, influenced by American authors such as Elmore Leonard. His famous work, Shinjuku Shark (the first installment in a series) won the Eiji Yoshikawa Award for fiction and the Naoki Prize.
“Samejima's compelling struggle to find the truth and the startling revelation of the killer's motive will leave most readers eager for the next book in the series to become available.” — Publishers Weekly
"A tough, taut book with loads of action. Ed McBain would love this guy. The good news is that Shinjuku Shark is the first of a series and there are plenty more to come." — The Globe and Mail
“His popular detective series, now available in English, gives hard-boiled fans and police drama enthusiasts what they are hungry for.” - Library Journal
“The series has sold like crazy in Japan and inspired a screen adaptation, and it's not hard to see why–its pavement-level fascination with the grimy criminal underworld of Japan comes through on every page like weeds shoving through concrete.” — The Gline
“This is an engaging book that will be enjoyed by mystery fans in general and police procedural fans in particular.” — MangaCast
"Shinjuku Shark is a rich, heavily-styled crime thriller worth the wait for its debut in English... This heated, hardboiled tale maintains its satisfying mystery through the final pages." — News Review
Arimasa Osawa was born in 1956 in Nagoya. After dropping out of Keio University, he dove head first into fiction writing, winning the First Detective Fiction Award in 1979 for his first novel, The Sentimental Street Corner. In 1991, he won the Eiji Yoshikawa Award and Japan Mystery Writers Association Award, and in 1993, the Naoki Award, all for installments in the Shinjuku Shark series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Shinjuku Shark?

Exciting, but a bit confusing  Feb 20, 2008
Shinjuku Shark was a fun, fast-paced read--modelled a little too much, perhaps, after the Western archetype of the lone detective against the Mob, it is nonetheless entertaining.

The only issue is that, at times in the first half of the book, it's not entirely clear if the events are happening in realtime or in a flashback. Given that this series is a bestseller in Japan, I can only assume that the translation is the cause. There are a few other hiccups like this along the way, but I still can't wait to see what happens next.
