Once he killed marriages for a living. Now he lives to kill those who paid him.

Half Caucasian American, half Japanese, John Nakata is a Wakaresaseya, a “breaker-up” of marriages – for which he charges a large fee – by seducing the wives of rich husbands who need filmed evidence to discard them for younger and more glamorous women.

About the Book

But then the Japanese Shinto side of his nature broods about the harm he’s causing. Can he achieve redemption for all the wrong he has committed? He decides his path is to kill ten of the husbands who paid him to seduce their wives and so avenge them. And make their deaths seem like suicide, leaving no trail for him to be identified as their killer.

But closing in on him is Lisa Perano, an ex-marine who’s searching for the answer as to why her young married sister took her life after meeting a man she seemingly fell in love with on first sight, and let herself be seduced by him that same first night.

Lisa can’t understand the contradiction of it and vows to find him. He’s a killer. She’s an ex-marine trained to kill. What will happen when they meet?

Their blood gave death to the branches of the tree.
And their blood is the sacrifice that sets him free.
Though their numbers still cling to the tree,
He wants to be redeemed by their blood

adapted from a Shinto poem

About the Author
Richard Rees

Richard was born in a village near Wrexham in North Wales, where he spoke only Welsh until he went to school at the age of five. An English Grammar school of the old establishment kind followed, fostering pupil advancement with a no-nonsense but constructive approach that proved formative. But his plans to further his education and develop his creativity, reading English at University, were thwarted by his father who advocated that his son should join him in the family accountancy practice. Torn by dilemma, Richard rebelled by joining the Royal Welch Fusiliers where he saw active service, witnessing at first-hand some of the horrors of warfare in the jungles of the Far East, including the death of his best friend who was shot and killed just yards away from him.
