Christopher Banks has become the country's most celebrated detective, his cases are the talk of London society.

Yet one unsolved crime has always haunted him: the mysterious disappearance of his parents, in old Shanghai, when he was a small boy.

Moving between London and Shanghai of the inter-war years, When We Were Orphans is a remarkable story of memory, intrigue and the need to return.

'You seldom read a novel that so convinces you it is extending the possibilities of fiction.' - The Sunday Times.

'Ishiguro is the best and most original writer of his generation, and ''When We Were Orphans'' could be by no other writer. It haunts the mind. It moves to tears.' - Mail on Sunday.
