Malice by Keigo Higashino Translated Book, 255 g
Acclaimed bestselling novelist Kunihiko Hidaka has been murdered. His body is found in his office, in a locked room, within his locked house, by his wife and best friend, both of whom have rock-solid alibis. Or so it seems.
Police Detective Kyochiro Kaga recognises Hidaka's best friend from years ago when they were both teachers. Kaga joined the police while Nonoguchi became a writer, though with not nearly the success of his friend Hidaka. When Kaga suspects something is a best off with Nonoguchi's statement, he investigates further, searching Nonoguchi's apartment. There he finds evidence that shows the two writers' relationship was very different than they claimed.
