  • Description
    When a man's body is discovered at the base of some cliffs in the small resort town of Hari Cove, the police at first suspect a tragic accident, a misstep that cost the man his life. However, when the victim is found to have been a former policeman and that the cause of death was actually carbon monoxide poisoning, they begin a murder investigation. Manabu Yukawa, the physicist known as 'Detective Galileo', is in Hari Cove to speak at a conference on a planned underwater mining operation, and finds himself drawn into the case. Did the murder have something to do with the fight of the small community to rebuild itself, or does it have its roots in the town's history? In a series of twists as complex and surprising as any in Higashino's brilliant, critically acclaimed work, Yukawa uncovers the hidden relationship behind the tragic events that led to this murder.

    Unnecessarily lengthy but interesting story

    For me this might not be the best work of keigo higashino but if you are detective story lover then this story won't disappoint you.
    The dead body found on the beach will arise a number of questions when the local police marked it as a suicide or probably an accident case, and thus an investigation starts which will also include a murder case of many years back

    A master storyteller...

    The story in itself is not one that may appeal to everyone, however the sheer way in which Mr. Higashino manipulates the plot that the story seems to hold its own and shine.
    That being said, this is probably the most comprehensive of novels that he has written in terms of elaborate descriptions.
    Not his best...but I would also say that this is very different from what we have seen so far in the Galileo series...

    p.s. The delivery from flipkart was as usual excellent.

    Slow & Steady plot

    A very slowly paced story compared to Higashinos other works. But still, a good one.
