The Devil of Nanking - Mo Hayder

I've got to rave about the latest book by Mo Hayder. She's not very well known yet...only written 3 books...but she's one of the best fiction writers out there. In this latest book she tells the tale of a disturbed young woman who is obsessed with finding a 16mm film of an unbelievable atrocity committed during the Japanese invasion of Nanking in 1937. The story switches back and forth between 1937 Nanking and present day Tokyo. Hayder's two previous books, Birdman and The Treatment, are also excellent.
