Book Nook: Unknown Male by Nicolás Obregón


Vick Mickunas' 2021 interview with Nicolás Obregón

Nicolás Obregón returned to the program to discuss his third novel in a series that features Inspector Kosuke Iwata. In this one Iwata has returned to Japan following a long absence to help with a murder investigation. A young woman, a British citizen, has been found dead at a "love hotel." As Iwata dives into this case he also begins to realize that a serial killer has been stalking women and as if that wasn't enough he also had an ulterior motive for returning to his homeland, retribution. It's personal, and it involves a close family member.

I'm a huge fan of Nicolás Obregón. During this interview he talked about his current writing project and it could not be more different than the Iwata books. I shall hold out hope however that we have not seen the last of Inspector Kosuke Iwata.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library, Clark County Public Library, Dayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
