Salvation of a Saint

借りる 借りる

From the author of the internationally bestselling, award-winning The Devotion of Suspect X comes the latest novel featuring "Detective Galileo"

In 2011, The Devotion of Suspect X was a hit with critics and readers alike. The first major English language publication from the most popular bestselling writer in Japan, it was acclaimed as "stunning," "brilliant," and "ingenious." Now physics professor Manabu Yukawa—Detective Galileo—returns in a new case of impossible murder, where instincts clash with facts and theory with reality.

Yoshitaka, who was about to leave his marriage and his wife, is poisoned by arsenic-laced coffee and dies. His wife, Ayane, is the logical suspect—except that she was hundreds of miles away when he was murdered. The lead detective, Tokyo Police Detective Kusanagi, is immediately smitten with her and refuses to believe that she could have had anything to do with the crime. His assistant, Kaoru Utsumi, however, is convinced Ayane is guilty. While Utsumi's instincts tell her one thing, the facts of the case are another matter. So she does what her boss has done for years when stymied—she calls upon Professor Manabu Yukawa.

But even the brilliant mind of Dr. Yukawa has trouble with this one, and he must somehow find a way to solve an impossible murder and capture a very real, very deadly murderer.

Salvation of a Saint is Keigo Higashino at his mind-bending best, pitting emotion against fact in a beautifully plotted crime novel filled with twists and reverses that will astonish and surprise even the most attentive and jaded of readers.

    ONE


    The pansies in the planter had flowered—a few small, bright blooms. The dry soil didn't seem to have dimmed the color of the petals. Not particularly showy flowers, but they're tough, Ayane thought, gazing out onto the veranda through the sliding glass door. I'll have to water them when I get a chance.
    "Have you heard a single word I've said?" Yoshitaka asked.
    She turned around and smiled faintly. "Yes, everything. How could I not?"
    "You might try answering more quickly, then." Yoshitaka, lounging on the sofa, uncrossed and recrossed his long legs. In his frequent workouts, he took pains not to put on too much lower-body muscle—nothing that would prevent him from wearing the slim-cut dress pants he preferred.
    "I suppose my mind must've wandered."
    "Oh? That's not like you." Her husband raised a single sculpted eyebrow.
    "What you said was surprising, you know."
    "I find that hard to believe. You should be familiar with my life plan by now."
    "Familiar ... Maybe so."
    "What are you trying to say?" Yoshitaka leaned back and stretched his arms out along the sofa top, ostentatious in his lack of concern. Ayane wondered if he was acting or if he truly was that nonchalant.
    She took a breath and stared at his handsome features.
    "Is it such a big deal to you?" she asked.
    "Is what a big deal?"
    "Having children."
    Yoshitaka gave a derisive, wry little smile; he glanced away, then looked back at her. "You haven't been listening to me at all, have you?"
    "I have been listening," she said with a glare she hoped he'd notice. "That's why I'm asking."
    The smile faded from his lips. He nodded slowly. "It is a big deal. A very big deal. Essential, even. If we can't have children, there's no point to us being married. Romantic love between a man and a woman always fades with time. People live together in order to build a family. A man and woman get married and become husband and wife. Then they have children and become father and mother. Only then do they become life partners in the true sense of the word. You don't agree?"
    "I just don't think that's all marriage is."
    Yoshitaka shook his head. "I do. I believe it quite strongly and have no intention of changing my mind. Which is to say, I've no intention of continuing on like this if we can't have children."
    Ayane pressed her fingers to her temples. She had a headache. She hadn't seen this one coming. "Let me get this straight," she said. "You don't need a woman who can't bear your children. So you'll throw me out and switch to someone who can? That's what you're telling me?"
    "No need to put it so harshly."
    "But that's what you're saying!"
    Yoshitaka straightened. He hesitated, frowning slightly, before nodding again. "I suppose that from your perspective it would look that way, yes. You have to understand, I take my life plan very seriously. More seriously than anything else."
    Ayane's lips curled upward, though smiling was the furthest thing from her mind. "You like telling people that, don't you? How you take your life plan so seriously. It was one of the first things you said when we met."
    "What are you so upset about, Ayane? You have everything you ever wanted. If there's something I've forgotten, just ask. I intend to do everything I can for you. So let's just stop all this fussing, and start thinking about the future. Unless you see some other way forward?"
    Ayane turned to face the wall. Her eyes fell on a meter-wide tapestry hanging there. It had taken her three months to make it; she remembered the material, special ordered direct from a manufacturer in England.
    She didn't need Yoshitaka to tell...

    Starred review from August 6, 2012
    Howdunit, rather than whodunit, appears to be the central question of Edgar-finalist Higashino’s brilliant second mystery featuring Tokyo police detective Manabu Yukawa (after 2011’s The Devotion of Suspect X). After Yoshitaka Mashiba tells his wife, Ayane, that their short marriage is over because she hasn’t become pregnant, Ayane thinks about “the white powder hidden in a sealed plastic bag” and decides that her husband has to die, adding a cryptic “too.” When Ayane leaves town to tend to an ailing parent, her protégé, who’s also her husband’s mistress, stops by to find Mashiba dead of what turns out to be arsenic poisoning. How did the poison enter the victim’s system at a time when the obvious suspect, the scorned wife, was away? While readers of classic mysteries will be delighted with the elegant solution, the book will also appeal to fans of procedurals that carefully develop the relationships among the investigative team members.
