Celebrated novelist Kunihiko Hidaka is found inhumanly murdered in his home. He was supposed to leave for Japan the next morning, and relocate to Vancouver. But his murdered body is found in his office – a locked room. His wife and his best friend seem have strong alibis. Police Detective Kyochiro Kaga identifies Hidaka’s best friend, Osamu Nonoguchi, at the crime scene. They were both teachers at the same public school many years ago. Kaga joined the police force and Nonoguchi became a full-time writer, although he was not as famous as Hidaka. As Kaga investigates the murder case, he unearths evidences that show that the relationship between the two writers was very different than it was known to the outsiders. Kaga must discover the truth and find out why Hidaka was murdered. Will he be able to solve the mystery? About Keigo Higashino Keigo Higashino is a famous Japanese mystery writer.
