Description

"Part Sherlock Holmes, part Harry Bosch, Higashino's hero is a quietly majestic force to be reckoned with." (Kirkus, starred review)

International best-seller Keigo Higashino returns with his latest mind-bender - Newcomer - as newly transferred Tokyo Police Detective Kyochiro Kaga is assigned to a baffling murder. 

Detective Kyochiro Kaga of the Tokyo Police Department has just been transferred to a new precinct in the Nihonbashi area of Tokyo. Newly arrived, but with a great deal of experience, Kaga is promptly assigned to the team investigating the murder of a woman. But the more he investigates, the greater number of potential suspects emerges. It isn’t long before it seems nearly all the people living and working in the business district of Nihonbashi have a motive for murder. 

To prevent the murderer from eluding justice, Kaga must unravel all the secrets surrounding a complicated life. Buried somewhere in the woman’s past, in her family history, and the last few days of her life is the clue that will lead to the murderer.   

From the international best-seller Keigo Higashino, author of The Devotion of Suspect X, comes one of his finest works of crime fiction yet.

Fascinating, intimate look at a Tokyo neighborhood in a procedural mystery

Detective Kaga combines a deep sympathy with ordinary people’s motivations and stories with a meticulous attention to detail. He leaves his suspects better off than when he first encounters him.

The narrator, with his film noir intonation and characterizations is perfect.

Loved every moment of this wonderful mystery

Clever plot. Poor translation. Goofy characters

The language (e.g. slang, idioms) in the dialog is inconsistent and inappropriate for the characters. I assume that's a translation issue.

Narrator does a good job with a huge number of voices of both genders.

High school writing

Never read anything before where EVERY character was unlikeable. Immature scenes with lots of fighting and pettiness. (Screaming at wives for not cooking dinner and families torn apart over a ruined Hello Kitty towel. Insulting to every Japanese person. And like a car accident... hard to not keep looking because you couldn’t imagine it could stay that bad. Yuck.

Very interesting story.

Good mystery, love detective Kaga. Narrator’s voice was to choppy and lacked expression, he didn’t add to the story.

Murdered For Love or Money?<br />

The murder of a mysterious divorcee with no apparent enemies stumps newcomer Detective Kaga. This story has lost love, estranged children, and a childs' wooden top woven into the story. A lot of seemingly unrelated things makes this a delicious treat for a mystery lover.

Mysterious Japan

This mystery has a very good story and resolution. But its excellence is its ability to make the mystery unique to the place of origin — Japan.

I first visited Japan several times in the 1980s. It was and still remains a unique place. Although Japan has changed considerably since that time, the characters, behaviors and place details feel authentic.

Mysteries give us the ability to see the inside of these character’s actions and motivation. Initially, I thought this was going to become a sappy series of short stories. However, the author was able to pull it all together to create a much better than average mystery.
