International bestseller Keigo Higashino returns with his latest mindbender, Newcomeras newly transferred Tokyo Police Detective Kyochiro Kaga is assigned to a baffling murder.

In his masterpiece Life: A User’s Manual, Georges Perec takes his reader room by room to discover the lives of people in a single apartment building. Imagine a variation of this pattern, introduce a Columbo-like detective, add a hint of the game Clue/Cluedo, and you have Newcomer in a nutshell.

VERDICT: Another cleverly plotted, beautifully structured mystery by the Japanese master of the genre. I highly recommend Newcomer for all lovers of smart stories, and readers interested in diverse and international literature.
