Review: Journey Under the Midnight Sun by Keigo Higashino

This is the fourth book of the author I have read. While I do rank his earlier works above this book (Devotion of Suspect X > Salvation of a Saint > Malice > Journey Under the Midnight Sun), I enjoyed reading Journey Under the Midnight Sun. This is a mystery that spans over 20 years and traces the journey of the protagonists and some recurring characters. It keeps you hooked as the puzzle grows in complexity. The language is, as always, simple; the writing to the point.
While it does seem like a door-stopper at 544 pages, it is fast-paced and is a quick read, just like how a good thriller should be.
