Tokyo, January 1933
On New Year’s Day, one of the Emperor’s closest advisers is gunned down by the Red Terror Society, a gang of bank-robbing Japanese Communists. Police Inspector Kenji Aizawa and his geisha spy, Reiko Watanabe, are drawn into the investigation but soon find themselves swallowed by a fog of treasonous intrigue.
As Aizawa hunts down any leads, he must ally with Inspector Tezuka of the infamous Tokko, the Japanese Thought Police. Adding to his troubles is a budding romance with the daughter of his commanding officer, the moga Minori Miyake.
Meanwhile, Reiko enters the Japanese film industry and draws closer to a movie director who has ties to the Red Terror Society’s leader, the former actress Utako Natsume. Now a violent radical, Utako promises a bloody Communist Revolution and is secretly aided by an old enemy, operating from the shadows.
Despite the danger, Aizawa and Reiko unmask dark secrets about the Imperial Army, the Emperor, and themselves. The third book in the Reiko Watanabe/Inspector Aizawa series, Treason in Tokyo pushes Inspector Aizawa, Reiko Watanabe, and Japan itself, to the breaking point.
