    Description

    Salvation Of A Saint is a mystery that focuses on trying to solve how a crime could have been committed when the most obvious suspect was miles away.

    Summary Of The Book

    Salvation Of A Saint is another Detective Galileo mystery from the popular Japanese writer, Keigo Higashino. This book follows the success of the previous translated novel, The Devotion Of Suspect X.

    When the body of a murdered man is discovered, suspicion soon centers around his wife, Ayane. Yoshitaka Mashiba has been murdered by arsenic poisoning in his own house. He had been planning to leave his wife.

    The problem is, Ayane was nowhere near the scene when the murder happened. She was miles away, visiting her mother. Detective Kusanagi knows she is the logical suspect, but he finds himself falling in love with her, which affects his judgement. His assistant is convinced that Ayane committed the deed. Finding that she could not depend on her senior’s cool judgement in this particular case, she follows his own precedence and calls in expert assistance. She asks Kusanagi’s friend, Yukawa, for help to unravel the puzzle.

    Yoshitaka Mashiba was planning to leave Ayane because she could not give him children. This impersonal attitude of his angered Ayane, who loved him. So, she has motive enough to have murdered him. The only problem is to link her with the crime, as she was not physically present at the scene of the crime.

    Salvation Of A Saint is a how-did-it happen kind of mystery instead of the traditional whodunit. It unravels like a sophisticated logical puzzle as Yukawa sorts through the tangle and tries to solve the seeming impossibility of the crime.

    Definite Page-Turner

    Keigo Higashino has done it again! Whether you're a budding new reader or a known veteran, the Detective Galileo Series will provide head-rattling experiences at an unexpected level of excitement!

    Salvation of a Saint in particular, reveals the crime, motive and the perpetrator in the first few chapters itself - but the genius of this "perfect crime" takes an entire book - and it's WORTH READING IT! Near realistic characters and circumstances, coffee addicted Physicist, twisted but relativel...

    There's nothing more scarier than the truth that hides in plain sight.

    First of all, what makes this this murder mystery an interesting read,
    1. By the end of the 1st chapter, you will know who committed the murder.
    2. By the end of the 2nd chapter, you will know what happened to the victim (as we always do).

    BUT

    3. It will take close to 300+ pages to find out exactly how the victim was murdered.

    When one picks up a murder mystery, one might expect an extremely elaborate plan to murder, motives that can sometimes go back decades and if I'm lucky maybe even a ...

    Brilliant and Unputdownable

    The book cover calls Keigo Higashino the "Japanese Stieg Larsson". All I can say is that Larsson would have been proud to be mentioned in the same breath as Higashino san. I have read both of his books (The Devotion of Suspect X and this one) that have been translated into English and found them extremely gripping and well constructed - possibly closer to Sherlock Holmes in mood than the Millennium Trilogy.

    Just like "The Devotion of Suspect X" this one is more of a howdunit than a whodunit....

    Another from the Master!!

    I read this book after reading "Devotion of Suspect X" and "Malice". In my opinion, "Malice" is clearly the best of the three with "Devotion of Suspect X" at number 2.

    Having said that, this is quite a good read though the story drags a little in the lean part of the book. The plot is good and predictable, the culprit is guessable though Keigo doesn't reveal it explicitly (a sharp departure from the other two books). The killer twist comes in the final pages which again is not so very unpred...

    Excellent!!!

    I happened to stumble across this book and its author while doing some research on devotion of suspect x. Ordered both books on flipkart and as always the delivery was prompt. This book had me on my "Edge of the bed" :) as the story was and the characters were so engaging and realistic. What makes this a brilliant piece of work is that the reader knows who did it but we along with Kusanagi and Galileo try to figure out how it was done when it looks impossible. I only wish this author had writ...

    Salvation of a Saint - Product and Contect Review

    This is a great mystery detective novel by Keigo Higashino. It is not just the process of investigating, nor the scientific explanations given but the way in which the author is able to capture and portray the depth and range of human nature and the motivations of the characters involved.

    The book is rather compact which makes it ideal reading while travelling. The pages are a slightly off-white colour with the print size being large enough to not be a strain to your eyes. The binding is ...

    Brilliant Book

    I was recommended this book by a friend and I bought it the same day. Within 2 days I had the book with me. Once I started reading it, I couldn't stop. It is a brilliant mystery which unfolds itself at every page. At the first page you know who is the murderer but how she committed the crime is something fascinating and make you glued to the book. Eventually, I finished the book in 5 hrs and after finishing, I was like WOW! :)
