    The second mystery I ve read by Higashino was even better than my first The Devotion of Suspect X There is something immensely satisfying about his approach to telling a story Perhaps it is a difference of cultural expectations on what an author needs to accomplish Though Higashino is a best selling author in Japan, he seems relatively unknown in the U.S What I do know is that when I finish, I feel a strong sense of pleasure The mystery is resolved, yes, providing a sense of intellectual satisfaction but there s also an artistic sense of pleasure, as from seeing a play performed by skilled actors Kusanagi walked in through the glass doors and up to the sales counter He had heard that the store stocked over fifty varieties of tea, and sure enough, there they were, all individually labeled and sorted into neat rows Behind the counter was a little tea room Even at the relatively quiet hour of four in the afternoon, he saw a few customers scattered around the cafe, sipping tea and reading newspapers One or two were dressed in company uniforms Male customers were definitely in the minority Like Agatha Christie, Higashino makes use of traditional or iconic set pieces, but is wise enough to let the setting be the background to the story, albeit an important one The main characters are all treated well, with hints at complexi...

    I was completely captured by Higashino s previous book, The Devotion of Suspect X, and pre ordered Salvation of a Saint as soon as I heard about it.It exceeded my expectations How do you keep your readers interested in a murder mystery when the murderer is revealed at the very beginning of the book 1 By making the execution of the murder so devious that it will need the input of Detective Galileo , a modern day, Japanese Sherlock, to reveal it.2 By writing the murderer and the investigators in such a way that you empathize with both sides, and the conflict is lifted from the story and lodged somewhere between your throat and your stomach as well as within the pages of the book.One of the things I m really coming to appreciate Higashino is that while his stories focus on the technical genius of the murders, he gives equal weight to the emotions behind the murder And the revelation of those emotions, the driving events, are just ...

    Every classic mystery is a magic trick it works through misdirection While the magician entices us to watch something in the open, his quicksilver hands does the business out of sight, and we are mystified at the apparent breakdown of the rules of nature The hand is quicker than the eye In the mystery story, it is the same we are persuaded to chase the red herrings while the writer cleverly builds up his plot under wraps The only difference is, unlike the magic trick, the novelist tells us how it was done at the end.Keigo Higashimo s The Devotion of Suspect X was a classic in this aspect Malice was also good, though by then I could sense how his particular style of sleight of hand was carried out In Salvation of the Saint , however, the style is slightly different.As with Devotion , the murderer is pretty clear from the beginning The focus in a Higashimo novel is not as much on whodunnit as howdunnit In this aspect, he resembles the great Dorothy Sayers for example, the novels Strong Poison , Unnatural Death etc it is impossible for the most likely person to have committed the murde...

    A big thank you to Blogadda for kindly forwarding a review copy to me The task of reviewing a novel of the mystery detective genre usually presents itself as a challenge to me Not because it is hard to put into words what the story holds without giving away spoilers But because a detective novel usually doesn t give a reviewer much to go on, aside from a mystery and its solution.But despite being a book of the same genre, Salvation of a Saint, provides ample food for thought on the complexities of the human mind and offers the reader some philosophical meanderings to go with a regular offering of a mind boggling mystery.Without delay, let me get to the summary now.Yoshitaka and Ayane Mashiba have been married for one year and yet their marriage is already falling apart Why Because turns out, both of them had agreed to treat marriage like a contractual agreement in which if Ayane fails to conceive a child within a year they will part ways And, of course, Ayane has failed to conceive at the end of the stipulated time period.So what happens next Yoshitaka declares he is leaving her because he has already found prospective new baby producer to replace Ayane And it turns out that she is none other than Ayane s protege, Hiromi Wakayama, whose talent Ayane has helped hone herself.And to put the cap on this madness, Yoshitaka gets killed in his apartment while Ayane is away in Sapporo on a visit to her parents and the detective in charge of...

    Wealthy businessman Yoshitaka Mashiba tells his wife Ayane that he s divorcing her because she hasn t become pregnant He reminds Ayane this was the deal when they married a baby on the way within a year or he looks for someone new Meanwhile Yoshitaka has been having an affair with Hiromi, Ayane s apprentice in the art of quilt making Heartbroken, Ayane goes off for the weekend to visit her parents While she s away Yoshitaka is murdered with arsenic laced coffee The police suspect Ayane, but she has an ironclad alibi To add to their problems, the police can t figure out how the arsenic got into the coffee Detective Kusanagi and his team question Yoshitaka s friends and acquaintances but have trouble advancing the case So the female detective on the team, Kaoru Utsumi, consults the brilliant physicist Yukawa, who s a whiz at solving difficult cases Eventually the ingenious murder method a...

    It seems like the end of 2018 is gonna be Keigo Higashino year for me and I m not complaining Salvation of a Saint is another impressive novel, a successor of the Devotion of Suspect X in the thriller series Detective Galileo This book revolves around a perfect crime a crime which is so proficiently crafted that it leaves no evidence or trace behind to pinpoint the criminal the unsolvability of the crime depends on the skill of the criminal rather than the incompetence of the investigator.The mystery here begins with the murder of a businessman Yoshikata Mashiba who s killed in his apartment alone with a poison laced coffee We later learn that the victim had made up his mind to divorce his wife so, the wife is a logical suspect here, as there scarcely appears anyone else who had a definite motive and who might have constructed such a scheme to end Yoshikata The thing is the murder was committed when the wife was miles away which would make it impossible to carry out.Unfortunately, our lead detective Kusanagi is enchanted by the wife and denies any allegations against her Seeing his judgment getting clouded due to his feelings for the dead man s wife, his assistant Utsumi secretly approaches Professor Manabu Yukawa, famously known as Detective Galileo to assist in the investigation, as the eve...

    Salvation of a Saint is the second Higashino novel I ve read in as many weeks It takes place in Japan and is a masterful police procedural featuring several police detectives and the ever fabulous physics professor Yukawa solving what appears initially to be the perfect crime One of the things I love about Higashino s novels is that they reflect a uniquely Japanese style and temperament The aggressive confrontational interrogation tactics typical of American detective novels and movies is nowhere to be found There s a politeness in every interaction between the detectives and suspects If there s a little tension, it s between and among the detectives jockeying for position to be the one to solve the crime Salvation of a Saint presents an unsympathetic murder victim and, initially, a particularly sympathetic potential perpetrator It s a detective novel for those who l...

    I read Keigo Higashino s The Devotion of Suspect X on a recommendation from a friend sometime back and really liked Since then, I read Malice and now Salvation of a Saint The strength is in the depth of the story and the characters They are all great crime novels with no fluff or unnecessary drama Salvation of a Saint is another great story if you like crime mysteries It is not as crisply written as the other two books mentioned above, but a very good read nevertheless Yoshitaka and his wife Ayane are about to separate from their marriage As Ayane is visiting her parents, Yoshitaka dies mysteriously as a result of drinking coffee laced with poison Yoshitaka has not been exactly faithful, and based on that it seems that his wife has the strongest motive to kill him, but she is away during that period Ayane s wo...

    Kusanagi had met plenty of good, admirable people who d been turned into murderers by circumstance There was something about them he always seemed to sense, an aura that they shared Somehow, their transgression freed them from the confines of a mortal existence, allowing them to perceive the great truths of the universe At the same time, it meant they had one foot in forbidden territory They s...

    There s nothing scary than the truth that hides in plain sight. First of all, what makes this this murder mystery an interesting read,1 By the end of the 1st chapter, you will know who committed the murder.2 By the end of the 2nd chapter, you will know what happened to the victim as we always do.BUT3 It will take close to 300 pages to find out exactly how the victim was murdered.When one picks up a murder mystery, one might expect an extremely elaborate plan to murder, motives that can sometimes go back decades and if I m lucky maybe even a weird weapon of choice.With slight modification to one of the above 3 elements, I d say, the book excels on all 3 grounds When I finished reading the first 2 chapters in the book and realized that there are than 300 pages remaining, I knew I was getting into something highly complex And boy, was I not disappointed The novels continues on with the detectives going about their regular work, questioning anything that moved The murder plan was extremely simple, but complex enough to keep the reader guessing till the ...
