This book is the tenth book of the Kaga series and one of the best!
In his book, author and journalist Kiyoshi Shimizu recounts in detail how he investigated the Ashikaga murder case and showed that evidence collected against Toshikazu Sugaya was flawed. An engrossing read about one of Japan’s most know wrongful convictions.
This novel starts like a simple story of two asocial persons who somehow try to overcome their difficulties together, but it takes a surprising direction and is much more complex than it seems at first. The story is nice, but it was not for me.
A funny yet engrossing locked room mystery and an impressive debut novel.
I read four books in January, including the first book of the Kogoro Akechi series, by Edogawa Rampo.
