I’m still captivated by the unique Japanese murder mystery books of Higashino.
Surprising. And fascinating.
This is his 4th book featuring ‘Detective Galileo‘, actually Dr. Manabu Yukawa — a physicist and college professor, who is known for his intelligence. He collaborates with the police when they can’t solve a crime.
The accused in a case of murder is found not guilty. Lack of enough evidence.
He returns to mock the family knowing he cannot be charged again.
In fact, this is the 2nd time in 20 years he was accused of murder and found innocent.
DCI Kusanagi worked both cases and is frustrated that the assumed killer is free. He asks Detective Galileo for help.
