The Devotion of Suspect X is sheer brilliancy, and I can’t really say much else other than you have to read this in order to understand why it is so brilliant. The way the book is set up is just so incredible it will drive crazy but I promise in the end it is so worth it. And what’s so fantastically annoying is the answer is so blatantly obvious! Yet Higashino still manages to keepyou in suspense throughout the entire novel. I mean even once he’s revealed the truth, I was still second guessing myself flicking back a few pages, all the while thinking that this can’t be it surely. Just brilliant, and yes I’ve said that a lot, but it really is!
Higashino is a master of mystery.
