New Contest: The Devotion of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino

The Devotion of Suspect X is due to release in February 2011 in the US.  It's an extremely tight-paced crime novel that features unique lead characters and a style of detective work that may not be familiar to US readers.  It takes place in Japan, and besides the great detective aspect of it, it also gives a fascinating glimpse into daily life among the middle-class.

Additionally, it's interesting to note that immediately upon starting it, you know "whodunit";  yet the resolution is far more complicated.  It's the kind of story where even the most minute detail will come into play at some time further in the story.  I've read it and my review won't be posted until the release date.  However, the publisher sent an extra ARC of it, so I'm offering it to readers in a US only giveaway.

The usual rules apply:  be a follower of this blog and leave a comment to this post.  On January 5, I will pick a random commenter to win.  Please make sure you use GFC or leave an email address for me to contact you.  Please note, this is an Advanced Review Copy (paperback), not a final copy. Again, sadly, US only.

  10. This looks like a great book to win, and gives more of a view into life in Japan, which I definitely want to know more about--and in a mystery format, no less.

    What way to better learn about a country than by fiction, even a mystery, that takes place there?
