In Focus: Keigo Higashino's 'Journey Under the Midnight Sun'

      Journey Under The Midnight Sun is Higashino's fourth novel to get an English translation.I absolutely loved his 'The Devotion of Suspect X','The Salvation of a Saint' and 'Malice'.'Journey.....',a crime thriller like it's predecessors,hit the book stores a couple of weeks back. At 520+ pages,this is Higashino's 'thickest' work till date(among his translated works).Hoping to review this book soon...

Here is the book synopsis(from the jacket)-

A twenty-year-old murder
A chain of unsolvable mysteries
Can one detective solve this epic riddle?
When a man is found murdered in an abandoned building in Osaka in 1973, unflappable detective Sasagaki is assigned to the case. He begins to piece together the connection of two young people who are inextricably linked to the crime; the dark, taciturn son of the victim and the unexpectedly captivating daughter of the main suspect. Over the next twenty years we follow their lives as Sasagaki pursues the case - which remains unsolved - to the point of obsession.
Stark, intriguing and stylish, Journey Under the Midnight Sun is an epic mystery by the bestselling Japanese author of The Devotion of Suspect X.
