Reading progress update: I've read 108 out of 466 pages.
The Devotion of Suspect X: A Detective Galileo Novel - Keigo Higashino,Alexander O. Smith

Detective Galileo is the main character, a supposing genius who also freelance detective work because he had a classmate who is a police detective. 

 

The wrongful killing in this case could so easily be seen as self-defense if not for the interference of a smart person. 

 

It was good if it is put in a Japan context while there is very little violent crimes and police rely on confession to solve crime. 

 

For an international audience, it got a very foreign feel to it as one would find too many plot hole to the story. But it is quite enjoyable to read if one could ignore the obvious plot hole for the moment and let the writer tell the story. 


As I watched this in Japanese, it takes me a while to know this is the very same book that the TV drama is based on. So, too bad. I know the ending.

Rivers of London Vol 5: Cry Fox
Rivers of London Volume 5: Cry Fox - Ben Aaronovitch

Series: Rivers of London Graphic Novels #5

 

A quick read featuring Reynard up to his old tricks where he manages to involve Abigail in a kidnapping. Someone should tell that girl not to talk to foxes. Literally. But at least Dan's family is safe.

 

I read this for the "Darkest London" square for 2018 Halloween Bingo. I'm pretty sure it works. A lot of it takes place in London. And the estate must be near London.

 

Um, can I count this for Darkest London?

Hurricane Florence has hit my state. Very, very wet with all the rain with more to come. There's flooding in surrounding areas, but we are ok here at the Voracious Homestead outside of Greensboro.
