    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    Not his best........but still better than the average!!

    This books again plays with the concept of a perfect murder. The thing I like about Higashino books is that you can always guess the murderer but the motive and the way the crime was committed is the thing that makes the plot a page turner. And that very thing again is what goes for this book.
    A brilliantly concealed plan, a motive that would appeal to anyone, and the style of writing in itself amplifies the layers of twists and turns and makes this Galileo flick an engaging read...

    Not quite as good as the previous one, but good

    Plot is not very interesting one. Galileo doesn't have much to do here, as the way in which the victim is murdered and who is the perpetrator of the crime, is pretty clear from the beginning.
    One will definitely enjoy this book if they haven't read 'Devotion of suspect X'. People who are aware of Higashino's capabilities, may not find this book very interesting.

    Awesome.....

    This is one of the best books that I have read; you cannot stop reading once you start it. Every page unfolds a new scenario. After this I am surely going to read devotion of suspect x. I just loved it.... highly recommended by me....

    This is what is called an exceptional Crime Thriller

    I picked it just because I had read "The Devotion of Suspect X" and I must say: The author does it again. On the surface, it looks like any other Crime Thrillar but by the end of Novel you will realize how different, how brilliant this Crime thrillar is. Words just won't suffice to praise the work. Read it for yourself & I bet you will feel: What a great fiction I've added to my Reading list!

    Having read two novels of Keigo Higashino- I am totally in awe of this author and fortunate to read...

    How do you keep the readers interested in the whole book when the murderer is known at the start. Well you need to be Keigo Higashino to do that.. What an amazing book, written so simply yet one cannot think how it all happenned till the last 30 odd pages.
    I would highly recommend this book to every book lover. Brilliant storeytelling !

    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 ...
