Six Four. The nightmare no parent could endure. The case no detective could solve. The twist no listener could predict.
For five days in January 1989, the parents of a seven-year-old Tokyo schoolgirl sat and listened to the demands of their daughter's kidnapper. They would never learn his identity. They would never see their daughter again.
For the 14 years that followed, the Japanese public listened to the police's apologies. They would never forget the botched investigation that became known as Six Four. They would never forgive the authorities their failure. For one week in late 2002, the press officer attached to the police department in question confronted an anomaly in the case.
He could never imagine what he would uncover. He would never have looked if he'd known what he would find.

Gripping Story right to the last pages
It was hard at first to get all the characters names because they were Japanese.But the story was one not to put down. You wanted to know what was going to happen next. Being a true story and asking my Japanese Pen Friends it is really a big book and film. I would love to see the film too.
I loved the detective who had been given a new roll as the Press Director. The character is great all the way through the book.
I enjoyed the ending but will not say what happens. But it is not what you expect.
Yes the problems the Press Director went through with father of the kidnapped daughter and the problems he had with his own daughter.
It is hard work but worth the read. You will get into the characters and remember the names.
