About the Book

Page Tanaka becomes involved in the disappearance of a student at the university where she teaches when another student requests her help in finding the missing girl. Soon it becomes evident that this is another in a series of missing women. Page is unwittingly drawn into a dangerous situation when she agrees to help the police. Readers will recognize familiar characters from Kyoto Connection and Kiss of the Geisha who return in this third book in the continuing series where kidnapping and murder once again mix with romance and passion.

Beneath the peaceful and serene beauty of Kyoto lurks a secret world where women fall victim to men who use them for sex and money. Is a serial rapist targeting "gaijin", and holding them captive in Kyoto, or is it part of a bigger plan for white slavery?

About the Author

Deborah Kemp was born in Massachusetts. She received a B.S. degree in psychology, and then worked as a travel agent for ten years. After traveling extensively, she returned to school, received a master’s degree in education, and became a teacher.

She and her family hosted several Japanese students, and she began what she calls a "lifelong love affair with Japan." She spent two summers visiting Kyoto where she made side trips to other areas of Japan. In writing Kyoto Connection, she combined her years of learning about Japan with her personal experiences in Japan.

She continues to teach her students about life in Japan, and has just completed her third book, Captive in Kyoto. This book features Page and Kenji from Kyoto Connection and Kiss of the Geisha, as they get involved in the disappearance of an American woman in Kyoto.
