"Ishigami is a lonely Japanese maths teacher infatuated with his next-door neighbour Yasuko, a lovely woman who has killed her deadbeat ex-husband to protect her daughter. Not only does Ishigami help her dispose of the body, he also devises a clever cover story for her when the police begin to investigate. But problems build as the involvement of an old colleague threatens to destabilise both Ishigami's ability to counter every police move and his plans for himself and Yasuko, who begins to break down - and pull away. A bestseller and prize-winner in Japan, this is Keigo Higashino's first novel to be translated into English; the second is Salvation of a Saint."
