The year is 1953. The Korean War is winding down. The Cold War is heating up. UFOs are appearing all over the world. Five flying saucers suddenly zoom across the skies of Tokyo. Ichiro Hirano's next-door neighbor is kidnapped by an alien lizard creature. The same creature is now stalking the pretty and talented sister of Ichiro's best friend. What in the world is going on? What do the aliens want? And where did they come from? These are the kind of questions that only master sleuth Kogoro Akechi and the Boy Detectives Club can hope to answer.

About the author


Ranpo Edogawa is the pen name (a pun on the Japanese pronunciation of Edgar Allan Poe) of Taro Hirai (1894-1965). He is best remembered for the Kogoro Akechi and Boy Detectives Club novels, published between 1925 and 1962. His lifelong efforts as a writer and promoter of the mystery novel in Japan were well-rewarded. The mystery genre today is a staple of Japanese television and the best-seller lists. In Gosho Aoyama's long-running Case Closed series, the boy detective sports the nom de plume of "Conan Edogawa." Two homages in one!


Eugene Woodbury graduated from Brigham Young University with degrees in Japanese and TESOL. He has twice been a Utah Original Writing Competition finalist and is a recipient of the Sunstone Foundation Moonstone Award for short fiction. He lives in Orem, Utah, where he works as a free-lance writer and translator.
