Publisher's Summary

Within the Tokyo underworld there is an industry which exists to break up marriages. It is known today as 'wakaresaseya' - agents who, for a fee, can be hired by one spouse to seduce the other and provide grounds for divorce on favourable terms.  

Inspired by a real case, this is the story of Kaitaro Nakamura, a wakaresaseya agent, who is hired by a man to seduce his wife. Kaitaro falls in love with his target, Rina, and after the divorce she moves in with him, unaware of his role in the demise of her marriage.   

Inevitably, however, the truth resurfaces...with tragic consequences.

Enigmatic, Intriguing

Interesting book about Japan and subjects foreign to most of us.
Ending somewhat abrupt. Recommended.

Superb first novel

Several well researched threads have been skilfully woven together by Stephanie Scott to create a compelling story. We know one outcome very early on, but her gradual unfolding of all that led to this event, and beyond, has made this an intriguing and very enjoyable listen.

This is why people read books.

A story that virtually no one in the UK is likely to know anything about. Really worth reading.

An absorbing exploration of Japanese society

A meticulously researched, atmospheric and absorbing story- beautifully written and thoughtfully read.
Highly recommended as escapist listening!

3.5 Stars. Very Sad

A very sad story-obviously very personal but unfortunately too common. Doesn't say a lot about the role of women in Japanese society which I suspect hasn't changed too much since when the story takes place. I felt very sorry for Rina, she was betrayed by all the men she knew.
