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.
