People Who Eat Darkness: The True Story of a Young Woman Who Vanished from the Streets of Tokyo–And the Evil That Swallowed Her Up

Richard Lloyd Parry, Parry, Richard

Lucie Blackman - tall, blond, twenty-one years old - stepped out into the vastness of Tokyo in the summer of 2000, and disappeared forever. The following winter, her dismembered remains were found buried in a seaside cave. Richard Lloyd Parry, an award-winning foreign correspondent, covered Lucie’s disappearance and followed the massive search for her, the long investigation, and the even longer trial.

Over ten years, he earned the trust of her family and friends, won unique access to the Japanese detectives and Japan’s convoluted legal system, and delved deep into the mind of the man accused of the crime, Joji Obara, described by the judge as  unprecedented and extremely evil. The result is a book at once thrilling and revelatory.
