Award winning author

The third title in Japan's most popular murder mystery series – after The Honjin Murders and The Inugami Curse – fiendish classics featuring investigator Kosuke Kindaichi.

Nestled deep in the mist-shrouded mountains, The Village of Eight Graves takes its name from a bloody legend. In the 16th century eight samurais, who had taken refuge there along with a secret treasure, were murdered by the inhabitants, bringing a terrible curse down upon their village. Centuries later a mysterious young man named Tatsuya arrives in town, bringing a spate of deadly poisonings in his wake. The inimitably scruffy and brilliant Kosuke Kindaichi investigates.

'With a reputation in Japan to rival Agatha Christie’s, the master of ingenious plotting is finally on the case for anglophone readers.' (on The Honjin Murders)
Guardian

'At once familiar and tantalisingly strange... It's an absolute pleasure to see his work translated at last'
Sunday Times

'The diabolically twisted plotting is top-notch'
New York Times

'This is the third in the Detective Kindaichi series, which has recently been translated into English. The first three translations are available as audiobooks. Japanese narrator Akira Matsumoto, who speaks English with an Australian accent, has a remarkable ability to transform his voice to fit the various characters, including the stuttering Detective Kindaichi. The story begins with an explanation of the title, which involves a mountain village, sixteenth-century samurais, murder, and a curse. Tragic occurrences continue into the twentieth century, so when a spate of deadly poisonings begins shortly after the arrival of a young man named Tatsuya, the superstitious villagers go after him. Listeners will be drawn into this atmospheric mystery with its cursed village, shifting alliances, unexpected love triangle, and memorable conclusion.'
