Early this morning, several hours before my arrest, I was woken by an earth tremor. I mention the incident not to suggest that there was a connection – that somehow the fault lines in my life came crashing together in a form of a couple of policemen – for in Tokyo we have a quake like this every month. I am simply relating the sequence of events as it happened. It has been an unusual day and I would hate to forget anything . . .
So begins The Earthquake Bird, a haunting novel set in Japan which reveals a murder on its first page and takes its readers into the mind of the chief suspect, Lucy Fly – a young, vulnerable English girl living and working in Tokyo as a translator. As Lucy is interrogated by the police she reveals her past to the reader, and it is a past which is dangerously ambiguous and compromising . . .
Why did Lucy leave England for the foreign anonymity of Japan ten years before, and what exactly had prompted her to sever all links with her family back home? She was the last person to see the murdered girl alive, so why was she not more forthcoming about the circumstances of their last meeting? As Lucy’s story unfolds, it emerges that secrets, both past and present, obsess her waking life . .

Σ’ ένα αστυνομικό τμήμα του Τόκιο, η Λούσυ Φλάυ ανακρίνεται για τη δολοφονία της φίλης της Λίλυ Μπρίτζες.
Η Λούσυ βρίσκεται στο Τόκιο δέκα χρόνια, μιλάει άπταιστα ιαπωνικά και εργάζεται ως μεταφράστρια τεχνικών εγχειριδίων. Παγιδευμένη στην αίθουσα ανακρίσεων, αποκαλύπτει το πικάντικο παρελθόν που την έφερε στην Ιαπωνία, την περίπλοκη φιλία της με τη Λίλυ και τη θυελλώδη σχέση της με έναν Ιάπωνα φωτογράφο, τον Τέιτζι.
Καθώς ανασκάπτει τα επικίνδυνα μυστικά που στοιχειώνουν το αινιγματικό μυαλό της, η Λούσυ ξεδιπλώνει τη ζωή της στο γεμάτο ζωντάνια Τόκιο, στη βρετανική ύπαιθρο και στα απομακρυσμένα ιαπωνικά νησιά, με κάθε βήμα να μας φέρνει πιο κοντά στην ψυχρή αλήθεια για το θάνατο της Λίλυ.
Ένα καθηλωτικό ψυχολογικό θρίλερ, τόσο συγκλονιστικό, όσο και εξαιρετικά σύνθετο.
