***

With The Master Key, the author Masako Togawa has gotten me used to very clever mysteries, a bit like another amazing Japanese mystery writer, Keigo Higashino in The Devotion of Suspect X, for instance. So I’m thrilled to present today another classic by Togawa: The Lady Killer. I actually don’t like the official synopsis, which I think takes off a major part of the suspense, so for your own reading pleasure, skip it.
Apart from that, Pushkin Vertigo is doing an awesome job at publishing mysteries in world literature.
