Piercing

 12.00

by Ryū Murakami

`Equally compelling and disturbing … Piercing is an even darker psycho-thriller’ — Daily Mail

`If Ryu Murakami’s short novel were a film it would be a nasty but effective B-movie chiller … Written in a faintly ironic style reminiscent of Bret Easton Ellis, Piercing is queasily compulsive … the plot delivers its shocks efficiently’ — Financial Times

Piercing

Every night, Kawashima Masayuki creeps from his bed and watches over his baby girl’s crib while his wife sleeps. But this is no ordinary domestic scene. He has an ice pick in his hand, and a barely controllable desire to use it. Deciding to confront his demons, Kawashima sets into motion a chain of events seeming to lead inexorably to murder.

Piercing is packed with all of the brilliance, madness and violence that we’ve come to expect from Ryu Murakami.
