Crime Fiction Review quote " The best mystery novel I read [last year] was a standalone translation of a Japanese novel, The Devotion of Suspect X Each revelation is smarter than the illusion it tears aside.

The author successfully combines unquestionable reasoning with unquenchable pain. In this brutally laconic translation, cold logic battles warm hearts throughout this elegant proof of the wages of sin, in which everyone suffers and no one can ever win.
