Although the reader knows who committed the murder, and why, and how, the surprises in this mystery never stop. The revelations twist and turn and double back, right up until the very last sentence, which is a jaw-dropper, and the perfect end to an utterly satisfying read. The Devotion of Suspect X is not the first book of Keigo Higashino's to be translated into English, but it's highly likely that it will be the book that finally gets his name into the consciousness of American readers.
