Genre: Fiction; Author: Sujata Massey; Status: In Season; Publisher: HarperCollins

Japanese-American spy Rei goes undercover at a high-end Tokyo department store.

Fashion Moment
”In the nearby trendy shopping district of Harajuku, I spotted six girls wearing vintage kimono as they strolled along, leaving enthralled male spectators in their wake.”

Lowdown
The attention to sartorial details and the store’s workings fascinates, but we get no sense of what — besides designer labels and her cute boss — makes Rei tick.
