A collection of four novellas: each taking place in 1998, each set in the world of Six Four, and each centering around a mystery and the unfortunate officer tasked with solving it. SEASON OF SHADOWS "The force could lose face . . . I want you to fix this." Personnel's Futawatari receives a horrifying memo forcing him to investigate the behaviour of a legendary detective with unfinished business. CRY OF THE EARTH "It's too easy to kill a man with a rumour." Shinto of Internal Affairs receives an anonymous tipoff alleging a Station Chief is visiting the red-light district ­- a warning he soon learns is a red herring. BLACK LINES "It was supposed to be her special day." Section Chief Nanao, responsible for the force's 49 female officers, is alarmed to learn her star pupil has not reported for duty, and is believed to be missing. BRIEFCASE "We need to know what he's going to ask." On the eve of a routine debate, Political Liaison Tsuge learns a wronged politician is preparing his revenge. He must now quickly dig up dirt to silence him. Prefecture D continues Hideo Yokoyama's exploration of the themes of obsession, saving face, office politics and inter-departmental conflicts. Placing everyday characters between a rock and a hard place and then dialing up the pressure, he blends and balances the very Japanese with the very accessible, to spectacular effect.… (lisätietoja)

4 stories set in the world of the novel "Six Four" (published before the novel in Japanese and it seems like this book may have been published as a novel).

The stories are independent although there is a link between all of them - the ace of the Personnel department Futawatari is there either as a main character (in the first story) or as a helper (the second and the third) or just show up for a minute (the fourth). Each of them deals with a mystery that happens inside of the police department itself - a senior policeman refuses to follow the standard order, a station chief is hounded by rumors just before promotion time, a female policewoman disappears, a political liaison is not allowed to do his job.

The stories are very Japanese - the structure of the police department there and the way their promotions work is very different from anything else I had ever heard and the bureaucracy itself and how it influences everyone is as much a character as the real characters are. And because of that, the stories also touch on how Japanese society works.

If you liked "Six Four", you will enjoy these. They are slow stories, with slow solutions but they are worth the wait. And as slow as they are, they are never boring. If you had never read "Six Four", you can try them I guess but they may be a bit too alien. I usually prefer to read stories and novels in the order they were written but in this case, I found these to be enjoyable because I knew a lot of small details already from the novel. But your mileage can vary of course. ( )

I really could have used an org chart so I could understand how all the positions and departments related. The lack of knowledge led to even more confusion in these short stories than it did in 64. But I still enjoyed the stories and found the cultural and social differences really fascinating. Though ultimately this is a book about office politics and it’s kind of wild to me how invested I can get into it. ( )

4 short stories from the author of 'SixFour', which was such a hit. Written before that book, and before 'Seventeen', again they show Yokoyama's interest in police procedure. Interesting to see how he has progressed as an author. ( )
