SummaryAdd a Summary
This is a true crime novel about a 20-something English flight attendant named Lucie Blackman. She gets a crazy idea to go to Japan with her best friend, and earn money as a hostess. The idea sounds scandalous in our words, but a hostess (or host) in Japan, is mostly innocent. Hosts and hostesses are paid to be company for a client. Someone to talk to, spend time with, and almost of a casual therapist to help with the burden of your job, your family, and your significant other.
On the other side, after Lucie disappears, the Japanese police had little reason to believe she had actually disappeared, and more likely, she simply ran away. There are so many twists and turns between the investigation, her family's actions, her discovery, and the actual trial, that you'll walk away with a knew knowledge of one of Japan's "other" cultures.
Violence: This is a true crime book. It does go through a lot of the investigation and her murder. Proceed with caution, and know you can always close the book.
