The Book Summary : From the author of the internationally bestselling, award-winning The Devotion of Suspect X comes the latest novel featuring “Detective Galileo”
In 2011, The Devotion of Suspect X was a hit with critics and readers alike. The first major English language publication from the most popular bestselling writer in Japan, it was acclaimed as “stunning,” “brilliant,” and “ingenious.” Now physics professor Manabu Yukawa—Detective Galileo—returns in a new case of impossible murder, where instincts clash with facts and theory with reality.

Yoshitaka, who was about to leave his marriage and his wife, is poisoned by arsenic-laced coffee and dies. His wife, Ayane, is the logical suspect—except that she was hundreds of miles away when he was murdered. The lead detective, Tokyo Police Detective Kusanagi, is immediately smitten with her and refuses to believe that she could have had anything to do with the crime. His assistant, Kaoru Utsumi, however, is convinced Ayane is guilty. While Utsumi’s instincts tell her one thing, the facts of the case are another matter. So she does what her boss has done for years when stymied—she calls upon Professor Manabu Yukawa. But even the brilliant mind of Dr. Yukawa has trouble with this one, and he must somehow find a way to solve an impossible murder and capture a very real, very deadly murderer.
Salvation of a Saint is Keigo Higashino at his mind-bending best, pitting emotion against fact in a beautifully plotted crime novel filled with twists and reverses that will astonish and surprise even the most attentive and jaded of readers.

  1. The name of the book is so intriguing! I love mysteries and this one looks like a nice read! I love reading fictions from around the world and i am definitely reading this! A very beautiful and detailed review dear!

    1. go ahead and read it and let me know if you liked it :-)

  2. Nicely reviewed. The plot sounds pretty interesting. I would love to watch if a film is made on this story.

    1. thanks..i'd love to watch the movie too if its made...the plot is was quite interesting for me.

  3. Certainly worth a read, I figure. And by the way, Sherlock Holmes is also eccentric. (Depends on everyone's interpretation or level of eccentricity, I suppose!)

  4. looks like a damn good book... that you for this recension - it is amazing.

  5. @Brendan, @Music book, @Tnahsin .....thanks everyone!

  6. A neat review, n quite an interesting read. Wat I enjoyed most about the book was the distinct japanese flavor adding a personal touch to the awe-inspiring plot. Another intersting facet of Higashino's writing I hav come to admire is tat the murderer is sane, has a motive tats almost ethical n at least I did feel the person was justified in wat they did.
