Acclaimed bestselling novelist Kunihiko Hidaka is
found brutally murdered in his home on the night before he’s planning to leave
Japan and relocate to Vancouver. His body is found in his office, a locked
room, within his locked house, by his wife and his best friend, both of whom
have rock solid alibis. Or so it seems.
At the crime scene, Police Detective Kyochiro Kaga
recognizes Hidaka’s best friend, Osamu Nonoguchi. Years ago, when they were
both teachers, they were colleagues at the same public school. Kaga went on to
join the police force while Nonoguchi eventually left to become a full-time
writer, though with not nearly the success of his friend Hidaka.
As Kaga investigates, he eventually uncovers
evidence that indicates that the two writers’ relationship was very different
than they claimed, that they were anything but best friends. But the question before Kaga isn’t
necessarily who, or how, but why. In a brilliantly realized tale of cat and
mouse, the detective and the killer battle over the truth of the past and how
events that led to the murder really unfolded. And if Kaga isn’t able to
uncover and prove why the murder was committed, then the truth may never come
