A man dies of a heart attack while travelling on the Tokyo subway. Unpleasant, but apparently unremarkable. But he was killed by John Rain, a paid assassin who's speciality is death from 'natural causes'. And his death has unforseen consequences when Rain himself becomes a target. He has to discover who is after him and why, but most of all he has to stay alive. Set against a beautifully drawn Tokyo backdrop, A Clean Kill in Tokyo is atmospheric and intelligent, delving deeper into the complexities and secrets of Japanese society as the mystery unravels.
