As Inspector Iwata returns More Praise for Sins as Scarlet Masterpiecethats the only way to describe Sins as Scarlet Obregns brilliant novel is at once a classic noir a psychological thriller and a riveting examinationsometimes dark sometimes moving to the point of tearsof life in a less than angelic Los Angeles And what a delight to see Inspector Kosuke Iwata back again You will love every minute spent with this one of a kind hero Jeffery Deaver New York Times bestselling author of The Burial HourIn the heady tradition of Raymond Chandler and Michael Connelly Sins as Scarlet lays bare the bru. Having been much impressed by Obregon s first book Blue Light Yokohama featuring Japanese homicide detective Kosuke Iwata I m delighted to report that Sins As Scarlet is even better So much so that it has parachuted its way into my top five reads of the year so farKosuke Iwata is a powerfully constructed character shaped and formed but with an underlying sense of self uestioning by his dual heritage and the collision of west and east almost fighting for supremacy in his identity He has had a troubled past in terms of his upbringing and former estrangement from his mother and has undoubtedly been tarnished emotionally by his fraught and ultimately destructive marriage This book effectively straddles all of these relationships providing an offshoot of narratives concerning his mother and wife and cleverly by what we observe of their own characteristics gives us a broader understanding of Iwata himself as a man a son a husband and a father too I felt that sometimes I was observing him through a prism when it came to his emotional and personal identity and the only real clarity in his character came through his professional role as a private investigator I liked the way Obregon did this and how Iwata then became a man of contradictions and certain notions about his morality integrity and so on were undermined by his interactions with and influence of the women in his life An extremely interesting character beautifully rendered but undercut with a sense of personal tragedy and a tangible lack of belongingSimilarly to the first book I admire Obregon s willingness to tackle big issues head on showing no fear or favour and opening the reader s eyes to aspects of society that some would rather ignore I think Obregon achieves this cleverly in two ways First the straightforward narrative of murder within the transgender community and Iwata s later and harrowing experience traversing the desert from Mexico to the USA which neatly encompasses the experiences of two groups of people that society as a whole are prone to vilify Secondly through the psycho geography element of the book where Obregon neatly uses the course of Iwata s investigation to crisscross Los Angeles taking us on a tour of myriad neighbourhoods divided by race and social ineuality that show not only the singularly uniue makeup of the city but the gritty reality behind the showbiz exterior I found these wanderings of Iwata absolutely fascinating and the little factual nuggets of Los Angeles life that these give rise to summed up by the assertion that Kosuke Iwata had gotten used to the staggered pockets of city that made up Los Angeles as his investigation becomes ever difficult and personalHaving become increasingly annoyed with a recent upsurge in the decrying of crime fiction as somehow inferior to literary fiction this is where a book such as this is worth its weight in gold As author Jon Courtenay Grimwood commented on my social media rant on the subject saying Crime novels specialise in asking the hard uestions and this is what Obregon deftly shows here Sins As Scarlet is not only compelling as a thriller should be but has layers of scrutiny and observation on the themes of race gender roles social division migration and which makes it punchy and thought provoking and at times exceptionally moving Highly recommended Sienkiewicz.
