The Master Key | Masako Togawa
post image

This oldie uses a highly original approach to the classic crime story. Set in Tokyo, just after WWII in an apartment complex for single women, mysterious things start to happen. Many of the women carry secrets, big and small, safe in the anonymity of their homes, when suddenly they are revealed.

It‘s a great read! Thank for sending me this one @Vansa such a good choice ❤️
