07 Apr / Shadow Family by Miyuki Miyabe, translated by Juliet Winters Carpenter [in AsianWeek]
The discovery of an illicit link between the murder of a middle-aged salaryman and a college student is just the beginning. What the police find is a fantasy family the murdered man formed online, even arranging a meeting in real life to play out their various “family” roles. The real-life daughter of the murdered man vows she will wreak revenge on the murderer. Expect a surprise ending.
