Devotion of Suspect X and A Midsummer's Equation were both more entertaining. The detective and the accused in this very clever plot both seemed kind of flat, compared to the intriguing Detective "Galileo". Still a well-written puzzle.

It was a easy read, long chapters, great twist and my official favourite book!

I found the story rather lack-luster and somewhat boring until about two-thirds through and then became a bit entrigued to finish the book as Dectective Kaga gave his analogy of the crime. Skipping from one character to another in first person was a different spin. This is the second book I have read by the author and "A Midsummer Equation" was more interesting.

Very twisty and compulsively readable.

The interesting back and forth format made the mystery itself more engaging, and I stayed up late to finish. I'll definitely be seeking out other stories by this author!

While bits of the plot strain credibility at times, this is still a really absorbing mystery. Early on you learn who and how, but the "why" is not revealed until the very last pages. Another book to keep you up reading until the wee hours of the morning!

The writing style is a bit more about telling than showing. The narrative alternates between a journal/account kept by Nonoguchi, who confesses to the murder, and Detective Kaga, but the voices feel similar. The ultimate motive for the murder seems a bit thin. But nevertheless, an entertaining read.
