A gripping debut set in modern day Tokyo and inspired by a true crime for readers of Everything I Never Told You and The Perfect Nanny What's Left of Me Is Yours charts a young woman's search for the truth about her mother's life and her murder In Japan a covert industry has grown up around the wakaresaseya literally breaker upper a person hired by one spouse to seduce the other in order to gain the advantage in divorce proceedin. A story of love and betrayal here s another novel that doesn t fit cleanly into one genre Inspired by a real crime What s Left of Me Is Yours is a mystery where we already know the killer a romance that sours and a family drama located in the heart of Tokyo I had no knowledge of the wakaresaseya profession before beginning but trust that Stephanie Scott is an expert not only in the real case that inspired the book but seemingly the entire Japanese legal system as wellI really have to take a moment to mention how different Japan s criminal justice process is from our own I mean one of the biggest flaws in the American system is how inconsistently people are treated across the board In Japan they seem to have the inverse problem preventing discrimination through absolutes and rigidity It s all obviously a lot nuanced than that and as someone who s really only vaguely familiar with one set of national laws I m not really euipped to dissect those intricacies But from this perspective I can t really wrap my head around some of the tenants in Japanese law Basically if I ever get arrested in Japan I ll have to call Scott to bail me outThis novel moves uietly but with enormous intent I almost felt as though I was reading two different books simultaneously which in a way I was The story of Rina and Kaitar is a slow burn that we already know ends in tragedy It s suspenseful not just because of its grisly outcome but because of the precariousness of their budding relationship There s a muted menace waiting just around the corner of every romantic outing or forbidden tryst even if it s not referred to directly In present day Rina s daughter Sumiko is unraveling the mystery of her mother s death It s not that the details are unknown to authorities they re just out of reach for her While not your typical thriller the tension as both narratives slowly find their way towards one another makes for plenty of revelationsIt s fascinating and shrewd Well paced but definitely a slow burn These are some of my favorite kinds of books to read but I always get nervous they ll be misunderstood by a reader who s going by a 5 word blurb I d recommend taking your time while reading this one enjoy the scenes Scott paints of both metropolitan and rural Japan so artfully There s plenty to appreciate here and I really loved having somewhere to travel to while being stuck indoors during this uarantine Thanks to Doubleday Books Netgalley for an advance copy
