Keigo Higashino avec The Name of the Game is A Kidnapping

A MODERN MYSTERY FROM 'THE JAPANESE STIEG LARSSON'

Keigo Higashino, author of the Edgar-nominated The Devotion of Suspect X (Abacus, 2012), presents a twisting mystery set in modern Japan.


Sakuma is a high-profile ad agent who was about to land one of the biggest gigs of his career. But he was betrayed by the owner of the company that just hired him.

Down on his luck and now on his way out career-wise, he planned to go publically chew out the man who brough him down. Instead, upon uncovering a deep secret, he devises a plan to bring down his new rival in a twisted game called kidnapping.

Review
Priase for Higashino:
Higashino is a deft conjurer of human relationships, and while this is first and foremost a tale of grief thankfully, no one calls Naoko a story of redemption he infuses it with spasms of sharp humor. East Bay Express
The novel flips suddenly in wonderfully pleasing fashion, from pathetic tragedy to social satire and domestic comedy with themes of love, work, sex and education. How could we have ever imagined, without the help of a novel like this, that Japanese life could be so fraught with suffering and so entertaining all at once? --Alan Cheuse for the Dallas Morning News"
