Book Review: The Inugami Clan by Seishi Yokomizo In a manor on the shores of Lake Nasu, an old man lies dying, surrounded by his kin. But there is no sorrow for the passing of Sahei Inugami in their eyes, only greed for the vast fortune he will be leaving to his clan.Inugami (犬神, Inugami) is one of the executives of the Shikoku Hachijūhakki Yakō, whose real form is that of a giant dog.

His head is able to separate from his body and act on its own to bite open an opponent's throat. The Inugami Clan is a monumental novel revolving around the warring branches of the titular clan over the inheritance of the dead family patriarch, which brims with long-held family secrets, resentment and a series of grotesque murders steeped in symbolism.
