In this gloriously over-the-top tale, Aoyama, a widower who has lived alone with his son ever since his wife died seven years before, finally decides it is time to remarry. Since Aoyama is a bit rusty when it comes to dating, a filmmaker friend proposes that, in order to attract the perfect wife, they do a casting call for a movie they don't intend to produce. As the résumés pile up, only one of the applicants catches Aoyama's attention--Yamasaki Asami--a striking young former ballerina with a mysterious past. Blinded by his instant and total infatuation, Aoyama is too late in discovering that she is a far cry from the innocent young woman he imagines her to be. The novel's fast-paced, thriller conclusion doesn't spare the reader as Yamasaki takes off her angelic mask and reveals what lies beneath.

Started slow, but ended fairly quickly.
By: Mitha Anind

A fast-paced thriller, as promised. Standing around 180 pages, this particular work of Murakami harboured a though apace storyline, it brought on the lonely widower Aoyama, having been left by his wife 7 years back, living with his son Shige, and his dog. Forlorned and struck by his son's persuasion to remarry, he held an audition to find a spouse laced on his right arm, promising a role in a film project. Entered Yamasaki Asami.

Although there isn't much exposure to the thriller that I had previously yearned for, this is still something new to devour on a one-sitting read.
