    An example of a bloody and ghostly murder mystery that is well written and riveting can be found in the Togakushi Legend Murders (Charles Tuttle, Vt., ) by . “The Case of the Gotoba Legend Murder” was the novel where he introduced Mitsuhiko Asami, a freelancer writer and a wannabe detective who travels around Japan and investigates local legends. Asami solves mysteries set in different time periods but his .

    As the bodies begin to multiply in the sleepy mountain town of Togakushi, the three learn that the resemblance of the murders to those of regional folklore is more than a coincidence. This novel based on Japanese legend and written by famed author Yasuo Uchida will mesmerize mystery buffs as well as those interested in the culture and folklore.   I don't read too many mystery-type novels (I believe I only read one last year: The Togakushi Legend Murders, also by a Japanese author), but I usually find them to be pretty fun/enjoyable. Also, although this novel is clearly billed as a "mystery", it doesn't have too many of the tropes commonly found in whodunits.

      The one real drawback to being a native English speaker is that everybody else knows your language’s literature but you don’t know is particularly sad when it comes to Japanese lit. I mean, here are a book-loving, book-writing people if there ever was one, and the genres they love to write are the genres I love to read. " It's the people close to your heart that can give you the most piercing wound." - Kenshin Himura (Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Swordma.
