Description

Acclaimed best-selling novelist Kunihiko Hidaka is found brutally murdered in his home on the night before he's planning to leave Japan and relocate to Vancouver. His body is found in his office, a locked room, within his locked house, by his wife and his best friend, both of whom have rock solid alibis. Or so it seems. 

At the crime scene, Police Detective Kyochiro Kaga recognizes Hidaka's best friend, Osamu Nonoguchi. Years ago when they were both teachers, they were colleagues at the same public school. Kaga went on to join the police force while Nonoguchi eventually left to become a full-time writer, though with not nearly the success of his friend Hidaka. As Kaga investigates, he eventually uncovers evidence that indicates that the two writers' relationship was very different that they claimed, that they were anything but best friends. But the question before Kaga isn't necessarily who, or how, but why. 

In a brilliantly realized tale of cat and mouse, the detective and the killer battle over the truth of the past and how events that led to the murder really unfolded. And if Kaga isn't able to uncover and prove why the murder was committed, then the truth may never come out. Malice is one of the best-selling - the most acclaimed - novel in Keigo Higashino's series featuring police detective Kyochiro Kaga, one of the most popular creations of the best-selling novelist in Asia.

entertaining

What did you like best about Malice? What did you like least?

I have listened to two other of Keigo Higashino's books. They were absolutely brilliant. Clever and surprising. This one not as good, so that was a disappointment. I enjoyed reading about the process of writing, a story about writers. The mystery was secondary and I wasnt 'bursting' to find out what really happened.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The story got a bit tedious in parts. Not enough dialogue or character development.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the beginning of the book most of all.

Was Malice worth the listening time?

It was worth the listening time.

Any additional comments?

Devotion of Suspect X by the same author is a million times better than Malice

Worth reading; the previous two books were better

I like Higashino. In my opinion he is the classiest of all thriller writers. His detectives solve mysteries based on logic and deduction: coincidence and chance play absolutely no role in the process. His plots are to mystery writing what chess is to sport.
Higashino also tells you the name of the murderer right in the beginning in his novels. The fun comes when the detectives try to solve the murder. There are layers upon layers of deception. No James Bond stuff like car chases and people jumping off roofs. Some might consider his books a little boring.
This particular book is, in that sense, just like his previous two. A man is killed, the killer is found quickly, and the detective now has to discover the motive.
Higashino makes the entire process interesting. The characters are very well developed. The pace is adequate: not at all fast, but no too slow either.
Higashino's earlier two books were better. But this is worth reading too.

Great mystery!

Any additional comments?

Finally! I find a great crime mystery that actually focuses on the crime. There are no sexual innuendoes, no erotica, and no suffering through romance.

This story is about murder and betrayal. Absolutely fantastic. * Finger crossed * I can find more great reads like this one!!!

Not one of his best

Overall I liked the story and the mystery was good. But the way most of the story was told as narration was disappointing.

Twisting yet predictable

Didn't love the narration and had trouble following who was who. The main character was jerky and annoying and I'm not sure if that was intentional or not. Parts of the story were intriguing but overall, I don't recommend the book. I have read other classic Japanese novels; this is not in that genre.

Entertaining and shocking to the very end!

This book takes you through twist and turns as you read the reasons why the killer did what he did. It was unexpected and shocking, a really good read! LOVED the ending.

One of the best suspense I have ever listened.

When I thought the story almost finished, another round of suspense started. The level of details are beyond my imagination. The story has a touch of "The Usual Suspect". Love it!

Multi layered misdirection

I enjoyed some of the deep curved twists and turns of the plot. Just when you thought perhaps the story was clear cut and that you know the characters involved they change. What really ruined this a bit for me was the narrator Jeff Woodman’s pronunciation of some of the names things that should be really easy I mean Japanese is all about vowels not difficult it seem that he often plays the emphasis in the wrong part of the name I also just basically did not find his reading style all that engaging in his defense The way the book is written perhaps lens itself to a bit of confusion but I did not find his performance rising up to the level I have heard on other books I really love the devotion of suspect X as it was such a great example of Japanese crime mystery thrillers. This particular book somehow I did not reach the levels of the authors previous books but I still enjoyed it definitely worth listening too if you enjoy Japanese storylines
