Ring by Koji Suzuki


Hardcover with dust jacket in Very Good condition.  Dust jacket has some creasing to lower spine, a small nick on front, and a few scratches presumably from being written atop of.  

Book itself is excellent;  clean cover.  Some tanning to pages.  Overall, an excellent reading copy. 

Inspiration for J-horror film Ringu & the American re-make The Ring. 

A mysterious videotape warns that the viewer will die in one week unless a certain, unspecified act is performed. Exactly one week after watching the tape, four teenagers die one after another of heart failure. 

Asakawa, a hardworking journalist, is intrigued by his niece's inexplicable death. His investigation leads him from a metropolitan tokyo teeming with modern society's fears to a rural Japan--a mountain resort, a volcanic island, and a countryside clinic--haunted by the past. His attempt to solve the tape's mystery before it's too late--for everyone--assumes an increasingly deadly urgency. Ring is a chillingly told horror story, a masterfully suspenseful mystery, and post-modern trip.
