Silent Parade


Keigo Higashino is one of the authors I’m always recommending to people – not only do you have an interesting look into Japanese culture and family, he brings intriguing plots and twists that are a delight to a crime fiction fan’s heart and mind. Also, each book is very different even if still in his distinctive style, though several of them including this one have a Sherlock-type professor who helps his police friend solve the crimes and gets way more involved than he ought. This one has a definitive baddie and a sympathetic family and their friends to root for – but it’s never going to be what it seems. Do yourself a favour and delve into this or any of his marvellous crime tales over Christmas.
