The third and penultimate novel in the Detective Kyoichiro Kaga series by bestselling Japanese crime writer Keigo Higashino

On the Nihonbashi Bridge in Tokyo stands the statue of a mythic beast - a kirin. One evening a man staggers onto the bridge and collapses beneath the winged creature. The patrolman on watch goes to rouse the man, who he presumes to be drunk - only to discover that the man had been stabbed in the chest. He is dead.

Meanwhile, a young man named Yashima is injured in a car accident nearby while trying to flee from the police. Found on him is the wallet of the murdered man.

But is he actually responsible for the crime? What is his connection to the victim? And why did the dying man drag himself from the crime scene to the Nihonbashi Bridge? Tokyo Police Detective Kyoichiro Kaga must piece together the answers to all of these questions in order to find the killer, but each answer he finds seems to throw up more questions ...

Taking us deep into the heart of Tokyo, and reintroducing the charming and ingenious Detective Kyoichiro Kaga, A Death in Tokyo is another mind-bending and hugely satisfying murder mystery from the modern master of classic crime.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Thrilling stuff! - Peterborough Evening Telegraph

A mystery puzzle ... a moral fable ... gives the reader much to ponder after the final page is turned - Wall Street Journal

The dark side-make that sides-of Tokyo, masterfully revealed - Kirkus Reviews

A stunning mystery that helps to secure Keigo Higashino's status as a modern master... Through the unique work of Kaga, the reader is able to marvel at a detective with a mental acuity that seems to rival that of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. This is the sort of mystery that fans of the genre need to read and savor - Book Reporter

“hard to put down”

I enjoy Japanese literature but I barely read Japanese thrillers.

This one is the third of a series but can be read a standalone. At the beginning I was hesitant, as the characters were a mix of annoying and... More
