Salvation of a Saint is a book that promised so much and delivered so little. Its USP is really that there is rather an intriguing murder method which only really becomes apparent at the end of the book, although there are some pretty strong hints earlier on. However, in order to get that far, the reader has to wade through about 200 pages of very ordinary writing - the characters are not only one-dimensional, they are almost universally unsympathetic. The reader knows who committed the murder about half way through the book, the only intrigue remains the question of how the murder was committed. The characterisation is flat and unconvincing, as are the relationships between the characters. My advice: don't waste time on this one.

An interesting story where you think you know who is responsible, but you simply have no idea how they committed a crime. Ultimately it's not as good as The Devotion of Suspect X, but still, an intriguing crime novel.

For me this was better than the highly rated "The devotion of suspect X". A page turner that teases you with plot twists and pulls you in. You constantly want to know what happens next.

Reminded me of Agatha Christie's Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Quite good, nothing sensational.

Subtle and slow, but rather beautiful.

Brilliantly plotted and a fascinating insight into Japanese life. You know from the beginning who the murder is but the revelation as to their true motive took me by surprise.

I had high hopes for this but it's so slow and there is nothing engaging about it. I gave up after 3 chapters
