An aspiring writer moves into a new apartment and discovers that her landlady has murdered her husband. Elsewhere, an accomplished surgeon is approached by a cabaret singer, whose beautiful appearance belies the grotesque condition of her heart. And while the surgeon's jealous lover vows to kill him, a violent envy also stirs in the soul of a lonely craftsman. Desire meets with impulse and erupts, attracting the attention of the surgeon's neighbor-who is drawn to a decaying residence that is now home to instruments of human torture. Murderers and mourners, mothers and children, lovers and innocent bystanders-their fates converge in an ominous and darkly beautiful web. Yoko Ogawa's Revenge is a master class in the macabre that will haunt you to the very end. Download and start listening now!

    Peter Straub, Bram Stoker Award–winning author

  • Although the stories may be perceived as gruesome, the author paints each tale exquisitely. Well-written. Kirkus
  • “Yoko Ogawa’s Revenge is a secret garden of dark, glorious flowers: silky, heartbreakingly beautiful … and poison to their roots.”

    Joe Hill, New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box

  • “Anger, mayhem, and murder are in the air, yet Ogawa lulls us with psychological tenderness and evocative details until the macabre bursts forth full strength. These are delectably fantastic, endlessly intriguing tales of obsession, revenge, and unforeseen interconnections.”
