Description - True Crime Japan by Paul Murphy

From Serial to The Jinx to Making a Murderer, true crime fever is sweeping America. But how does crime-and punishment-differ in other cultures? True Crime Japan offers a close-up look at this little-documented aspect of Japanese society through a year's worth of criminal court cases in Matsumoto, a city 140 miles west of Tokyo.

"Paul Murphy's understanding of these processes shines through in his writing. He does not over complicate or throw statistics in to impress. He weaves such information effortlessly within the narrative resulting in welcome additions to case studies." -Crime Traveller
