“People Who Eat Darkness: The True Story of a Young Woman Who Vanished from the Streets of Tokyo — and the Evil That Swallowed Her Up” by Richard Lloyd Parry
Lucie Blackman, a British woman living in Tokyo, disappeared in 2000. Because her parents decided to talk directly about the case with the press, Lucie’s case made international headlines.
Parry’s work describes in detail the search for Lucie, the grief her family suffered whilst her fate remained unknown, and the trauma of finally finding her body.
Going beyond the case, this book takes an in-depth look at Japan’s culture. It examines the questionable police work done early in the case, the differences between Japanese and British crime investigation, and more. Truly a must-read for any fan of true crime.
