Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

In this unusual mystery and the resulting battle of wits it recounts, the listener learns early on the full details of the murder of Togashi and the roles played by his ex-wife, Yasuko; daughter, Misato; and their neighbor, Ishigami. David Pittu narrates with a considered and almost-conversational style, allowing the main focus of the story, the investigation of the murder and the interaction between the protagonists, to gently unfold. Since the text has been translated from Japanese, the listener’s initial lack of familiarity with some of the Japanese names can cause some confusion regarding the characters. However, as the story and narration draw one in, confusion is dispelled, and a high-quality listen ensues. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2011]
