Description

An astonishing and evocative debut from a new voice in crime fiction.


And now he knew what was wrong with the arrangement. It was the Ma... the negative space... There was only one thing beautiful enough to fill it and - finally - she was with him. Ready, if not willing, to play her role.


Holly Blain wants to cover real news. The entertainment beat - pop stars and teen trends - was not why she moved to Tokyo. When she meets Inspector Tetsu Tanaka, head of Tokyo's Metropolitan Police's Gaikoku-jin unit, it might just be her big break.


Tanaka isn't so sure. Always one to do things by the book, he's hesitant about bringing this headstrong reporter into his carefully controlled investigation.


But young women keep disappearing and Tanaka is given no choice. He and Blain must trust each other if they are to stop a tormented killer from bringing his twisted plan to its shocking conclusion.





Filled with twists and turns, this unforgettable thriller is JJ Ellis' first novel.

About JJ Ellis

JJ Ellis was born and raised in Yorkshire in northern England although now lives near London. The author's interest in Japan was sparked when a family member won a trip there by singing in Japanese at an exhibition in the UK. Several visits followed - to Tokyo and further flung places such as Ishigaki and Iriomote - as Ellis developed the idea for The Flower Arranger . Two more crime novels featuring the team of Tanaka and Blain are planned.



The Flower Arranger is JJ Ellis' first novel.
