Three stars might be a little harsh on this one, although the writing style in it did get a little irritating toward the end. This book is written by an author who very purposefully styled himself as the Japanese answer to Edgar Allen Poe and he stays very true to that moniker. Definitely a few of these stories have genuinely clever, creepy things in them and are even fairly well written, however there were some definite holes in some of the stories and I wasn't totally convinced as he got deeper into the perfect murder plots.
