The Girl With Two Names: A Novel
Be careful what you wish for!
A self-obsessed Japanese icon appears to have a perfect life. Fame, fortune, and a celebrity marriage… but all is not as it seems.
Yayoi wears her glamor like a mask. There are dark corners of her life she wants to hide from her fans. An abusive husband, an oppressive recording contract with J-BIG Corp, a company controlled by her husband's family that's crushing her creativity. Then, there are the memories of a life swept away by a tsunami.
While in New Zealand to film a music video, she is surprised by her estranged husband Nori, who without warning appears at her hotel and assaults her. On the run from both Nori and J-BIG, she meets Bill, a young corporate attorney recently made redundant, who plans to revisit his past in the hope he can heal old wounds and reshape his future. Although from two very different worlds, they find themselves falling for each other, both unaware of the extreme measures Nori will take to get Yayoi to return to Japan with him.
The Girl With Two Names is a psychological thriller set in urban Japan and the raw backwoods of New Zealand.
