Waiting on Wednesday 22/6/11

This is the first time that I’ve participated in a ‘Waiting On’ Wednesday, although I find it a great way to catch up on new releases and other books I should read. Hosted by Breaking the Spine, this is a weekly event.

I’ve spoken about this book in various comments, but I’ll say it again: I am eagerly awaiting the release of The Devotion of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino. Various bookstore websites and the publisher tell me sometime between June 28th and July. I hope it’s sooner rather than later!

From Hachette’s website:

Yasuko lives a quiet life, working in a Tokyo bento shop, a good mother to her only child. But when her ex-husband appears at her door without warning one day, her comfortable world is shattered.

When Detective Kusanagi of the Tokyo Police tries to piece together the events of that day, he finds himself confronted by the most puzzling, mysterious circumstances he has ever investigated. Nothing quite makes sense, and it will take a genius to understand the genius behind this particular crime…

One of the biggest-selling Japanese thrillers ever, and the inspiration for a cult film, The Devotion of Suspect X is now being discovered across the world. Its blend of a page-turning story, evocative Tokyo setting and utterly surprising ending make it a must-read for anyone interested in international fiction.

Have you read this book? What are you waiting on?

  1. Oooh, this sounds so wonderful! One of my friends is studying abroad in Tokyo next month. I’d love to read this and/or send this to her. It sounds like something we’d both love.

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
