Oh, and she got pregnant because as a naive 13-year-old, she went off and had sex with 5 unknown teenagers in a van. With the redolent atmosphere of Ian Rankin and the spine-chilling characters of Thomas Harris, Mo Hayder's The Devil of Nanking, takes the reader on an electrifying literary ride from the palatial apartments of yakuza kingpins to deep inside the secret history of one of the twentieth century's most brutal events: the Nanking Massacre. Japan recently ignited an international firestorm by using the word "incident" to refer to the events of 1937 in Nanking, China.Chang argued that figure's use by a high-ranking Japanese government official was evidence that the Japanese government recognized 300,000 as the number of Chinese civilian deaths. Every time I picked up a new book, I kept thinking about how I already wanted to re-read The Devil of Nanking.

On the rape that occurred during the massacre, Chang wrote that "certainly it was one of the greatest mass rapes in world history. Atmosphere is brilliantly sustained, set pieces are pulse-racing, and (most satisfying of all) Grey is a truly complex and damaged heroine, the perfect conduit for the reader through this dark world.

So, be forewarned that this is not for the weak of heart or faint of stomach, but also do know that is is fairly tasteful and not extremely descriptive or gruesome solely for shock’s sake, which is an important distinction in my opinion. The main character was strange to say the least, but wow once I got into the story it just builds like a storm into a dark, disturbing, exciting climax. Now Grey is naive, but since she left the confines of her parent’s bubble of protection she has received some knocks, some realizations with tragic consequences that have given her some understanding of how the world works. A memorial service was held in China by Nanjing Massacre survivors coinciding with her funeral in Los Altos, California.
