The Lady Killer is a publication from 1963 translated from Japanese, it’s a little bit pulp and a little bit clever in its rendering of the tale.
Ichiro Honda is a smooth operator who targets women to fulfill his sexual needs. He chooses the lonely and the uncertain. By his own Huntsman Log’s accounting, he is a practiced and skilled lover. He enjoyshis time with each woman, at times returning for the experience.
When some of his conquests are murdered the evidence links clearly to Honda. But is that the whole story. This is a stylish book, almost illusory in its presentation, and an interesting read. Togawa is Known as the P.D. James of Japan.
