Salvation of a Saint……

Huh…? !!….you must be wondering from the post title what is this about….:)

No, I am not that qualified to write anything deep about any religion…..so this is not a religious post…..so what it is…?

This is the title of one of the most spine chilling, intense, gripping murder mystery stories I have read in a long time……and it comes from an author whom I admire very much for his writing skills…..

I am talking about one of Japan’s most famous and respected mystery story writers, Keigo Higashino, who is also popularly called as the Japanese Steig Larsson…….and this is his criminal masterpiece, Salvation of a Saint……

KEIGO HIGASHINO

What I feel about this book is this…….within the very first two three pages of reading, you will get to know that a cold murder has taken place and you will also come to know[or rather guess rightly] who has done the crime…..generally the murderer gets revealed in the end of the story…….but since you already know the murderer right at the beginning, then what do the 377 pages of the book tell next……that’s where the beauty of Higashino’s writing comes into play…..he engages his readers at the edge of their seats to find out why the crime was committed, what was the ulterior motive and the how it was done……..you will not be able to leave a single page till the last one until you get awestruck at the findings…..and the intricate investigative methods applied by Tokyo police detective Kusanagi to unpick a seemingly unrelated sequence of events an to unravel the most spectacular web of deceipt he has ever faced………………my final verdict…..it is a must read for murder mystery story lovers and to get introduced to the Japanese super star Keigo Higashino…………:)

Just a gist……

“When a man is found dead by poisoning in his empty home, his beautiful wife Ayane Mita immediately falls under prime suspicion. All evidences point out to Ayane being the logical suspect, but how could she have committed the crime when she was hundreds of miles away from the murder spot…..?”…..:)

Get it to know……….:)
