Suzuki is just an ordinary man until his wife is murdered. When he discovers the criminal gang responsible, he leaves behind his life as a maths teacher and joins them, looking for a chance to take his revenge. What he doesn't realise is that he's about to get drawn into a web of unusual professional assassins, each with their own agenda.

The Whale convinces his victims to take their own lives using just his words.

A great story and selection of voices

I loved bullet train and pre-ordered this as soon as I could and I wasn't disappointed. the story is a smooth ride and seemed to be over far too soon for me. I would have happily had more. The author is such a good storyteller.

As for the narrator, I went through a journey with him, just like on bullet train when i first listened to the sample before buying. With his general narration, i wasnt sure if i was going to manage to get to the end. However, if you have heard a small clip before buying and felt the same then please be reassured. The voices the narrator uses for characters bring them to life. He really is brilliant with the character work in my opinion.

Had to give it 5 stars...
