Summary

Yasuko Hanaoka, a divorced, single mother, thought she had finally escaped her abusive ex-husband. But when he shows up one day, threatening both her and her teen-aged daughter Misato, he ends up dead on her apartment floor. However, her enigmatic neighbor, Ishigami, a brilliant math teacher, provides an out when he offers to craft for them the perfect alibi. Detective Kusanagi of the Tokyo Police, faced with a brutal murder and evidence that doesn't add up, seeks the advice of Dr. Manabu Yukawa, a brilliant physicist nicknamed "Detective Galileo." What ensues is a fierce battle of wits, one mastermind against another, one using all his skill and wits to uncover the truth, the other risking everything to obscure it, proving the depths of his devotion.Tightly plotted and sharply written, with one surprising plot twist after another and characters that will linger in the reader's mind long after the last page is turned, The Devotion of Suspect X shows why Keigo Higashino is the best-loved, most popular writer in Japan today.
