Malice by Keigo Higashino( Book )

Acclaimed bestselling novelist Kunihiko Hidaka is found brutally murdered in his home on the night before he's planning to leave Japan and relocate to Vancouver. His body is found in his office, in a locked room, within his locked house, by his wife and his best friend, both of whom have rock solid alibis. Or so it seems. Police Detective Kyochiro Kaga recognizes Hidaka's best friend. Years ago when they were both teachers, they were colleagues at the same high school. Kaga went on to join the police force while Osamu Nonoguchi left to become a full-time writer, though with not nearly the success of his friend Hidaka. But Kaga thinks something is a little bit off with Nonoguchi's statement and investigates further, ultimately executing a search warrant on Nonoguchi's apartment. There he finds evidence that shows that the two writers' relationship was very different than the two claimed. Nonoguchi confesses to the murder, but that's only the beginning of the story. In a brilliantly realized tale of cat and mouse, the detective and the writer battle over the truth of the past and how events that led to the murder really unfolded. Which one of the two writers was ultimately guilty of malice?

Under the midnight sun by Keigo Higashino( Book )

48 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an abandoned building in 1973 in Osaka, the body of a murdered man is found. Working quietly and methodically, Detective Sagasaki discovers two people who appear to have clear links to the crime -- Ryo, the uncommunicative son of the dead man, and Yukiho, the charming daughter of the man principally in the frame for the murder. Decades pass. The murder remains unsolved. Ryo and Yukiho continue with their lives, disappearing and reappearing through school, jobs, and marriage. But Sagasaki, who carries tenaciousness to the point of obsession, is prepared to spend as much time as it takes to solve an insoluble case. As the many strands of plot, coincidence, and rumor dovetail, Sagasaki zeroes in on the curious bond connecting Yukiho to Ryo. Journey under the Midnight Sun isn't a whodunnit or even a whydunnit, but a what-exactly-is-being-dunnit, and an extraordinary work of fiction that could be read as a potted history of Japan, an exploration of a crumbling social order, a ludic literary puzzle that plays with genre expectations, and most of all, a tantalising mystery that keeps the pages turning. --

"Manabu Yukawa, the physicist known as "Detective Galileo," has traveled to Hari Cove, a once-popular summer resort town that has fallen on hard times. He is there to speak at a conference on a planned underwater mining operation, which has sharply divided the town. One faction is against the proposed operation, concerned about the environmental impact on the area, known for its pristine waters. The other faction, seeing no future in the town as it is, believes its only hope lies in the development project. The night after the tense panel discussion, one of the resort's guests is found dead on the seashore at the base of the local cliffs. The local police at first believe it was a simple accident-that he wandered over the edge while walking on unfamiliar territory in the middle of the night. But when they discover that the victim was a former policeman and that the cause of death was carbon monoxide poisoning, they begin to suspect he was murdered, and his body tossed off the cliff to misdirect the police. As the police try to uncover where Tsukahara was killed and why, Yukawa finds himself enmeshed in yet another confounding case of murder. In a series of twists as complex and surprising as any in Higashino's brilliant, critically acclaimed work, Galileo uncovers the hidden relationship behind the tragic events that led to this murder"--
