Penance byKanae Minato. Published by Mullholland

Fifteen years ago, Sae, Maki, Yujo and Akiko were separated from their friend by a stranger. Not long after, their friend, Emil, was found murdered. The girls were never able to give police a specific enough description to identify the stranger that was suspected of killing Emil, and her mother, Asako, blames the girls for her daughter’s death. She curses them all and promises they will pay. Now, all these years later, the killer still hasn’t been caught, but the four girls involved that day are living with the consequences of it, still. This is a character driven mystery, not unlike Tana French’s Into the Woods
