Monday 13th February 2012 6:30pm - 7:30pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Free Event

In the summer of 2000, Lucie Blackman stepped out into the vastness of Tokyo and disappeared forever. The Parryfollowing winter, her dismembered remains were found buried in a seaside cave. Richard Lloyd Parry (right), an award-winning foreign correspondent, has followed the case since Lucie's disappearance, delving into the mind and background of the man accused of the crime - Joji Obara, described by the judge as 'unprecedented and extremely evil' and wrote about it in People Who Eat Darkness: Love, Grief and a Journey Into Japan's Shadows.

Writer on Italy and crime novelist Tobias Jones's (left) new book is Blood on the Altar, the true life story of an Italian murderer, Restivo, protected for years by his family, as well as a doctor with links to organised crime, and a priest who had vices of his own.

Jones and Lloyd Parry will be in conversation with philosophy writer Julian Baggini about crime, evil and justice.
This Festival of Ideas event is part of a regular series of live discussions with Julian Baggini recorded at Foyles for the microphilosophy podcast series.
