It was for me a fascinating book (not least because I know Tokyo reasonably well…) but it is ... Harry Potter, child of the Peverell line is a necromancer. He has spent his entire childhood speaking with the dead, playing in a graveyard full of dark and old spirits.

Reiko Himekawa and her squad take the case. The victim was slaughtered brutally---his wounds are bizarre, and no one can figure out the "what" or the "why" of this crime. The Silent Dead/Death in the Lakes is the first book in Detective Beth Young series and a solid police procedural.
