    圣女的救济 | Salvation of a Saint by Keigo Higashino

    In 2011, The Devotion of Suspect X was a hit with critics and readers alike. The first major English language publication from the most popular bestselling writer in Japan, it was acclaimed as “stunning,” “brilliant,” and “ingenious.” Now physics professor Manabu Yukawa—Detective Galileo—returns in a new case of impossible murder, where instincts clash with facts and theory with reality.

    Yoshitaka, who was about to leave his marriage and his wife, is poisoned by arsenic-laced coffee and dies. His wife, Ayane, is the logical suspect—except that she was hundreds of miles away when he was murdered. The lead detective, Tokyo Police Detective Kusanagi, is immediately smitten with her and refuses to believe that she could have had anything to do with the crime. His assistant, Kaoru Utsumi, however, is convinced Ayane is guilty. While Utsumi’s instincts tell her one thing, the facts of the case are another matter. So she does what her boss has done for years when stymied—she calls upon Professor Manabu Yukawa.

    But even the brilliant mind of Dr. Yukawa has trouble with this one, and he must somehow find a way to solve an impossible murder and capture a very real, very deadly murderer.
    Salvation for a Saint is Keigo Higashino at his mind-bending best, pitting emotion against fact in a beautifully plotted crime novel filled with twists and reverses that will astonish and surprise even the most attentive and jaded of readers.

    周日晚上七点,东京某IT公司社长真柴被发现死在家中,死因是喝咖啡时砒霜中毒。当天早上,真柴还和情人一起喝过咖啡、用过水壶,并约好共进晚餐。

    真柴家除了二楼的一扇小窗开着,其余门窗都从内反锁。案发时,妻子远在千里之外的北海道娘家,情人在文化学校教拼布,现场没有其他人出入过的痕迹。

    真柴没有丝毫自杀的理由,也找不到任何他杀证据。“神探伽利略”汤川学遇到了比《嫌疑人X的献身》更难破解的谜局:“这种事情只在理论上可行,现实中几乎不可能做到。你们警方恐怕会输,而我也无法获胜。”
