Crossfire

Crossfire - Miyuki Miyabe, Deborah Stuhr Iwabuchi, Anna Husson Isozaki Could be described as "Firestarter" meets a Japanese police procedural with a sophisticated vigilante group thrown in. It all works, sort of and I like that Miyabe takes those chances. The female arson detective grounds the story, but a few of the characters aren't just darkly shaded, which is ok, but annoying and glib. All She Was Worth for me was a stronger work.
