People Who Eat Darkness: The True Story of a Young Woman Who Vanished from the Streets of Tokyo--and the Evil That Swallowed Her Up - Richard Lloyd Parry

I met a friend of mine a year after we’d graduated high school. She’d been in Japan as a hostess and regaled me with tales of expensive jewelry and offers of trips to Paris in exchange for making conversation with Japanese businessmen. I remember thinking “What the hell are you doing?” because it seemed like everything with this job could go sideways so quickly.


Having since been to Japan and spent a night in Roppongi, I’m even more fascinated by this world. Parry does an excellent job laying out both the district’s allure for and mindsets of the foreigners and Japanese men who frequent these clubs, as well as painting an intimate portrait of one young woman sadly killed by a monster who was able to exist for a very long time in the shadows of Roppongi.


This is a chilling and disturbing tale of a sexual predator, so make sure that you are okay to read the details. However, if you enjoy true crime, People Who Eat Darkness is a great read.
