Book Review: The Tokyo Zodiac Murders

5 stars

Genre: Impossible Crime/Locked-Room Mystery

The Tokyo Zodiac Murders

Intricately deceiving. The letter that sets up the stage is hard to decipher, but the puzzle aspects continue at a rapid pace for the rest of the novel.

I think if I had a better grasp of Japanese history and geography, it would have been even more fascinating. Shimada did an amazing job of creating a puzzler of a story. There were so many moving parts. My only minor issue is that there’s a lot of dialogue, and I kind of enjoyed the scenes with more description of the characters and locations.

A stumper and a shocker of a brilliant locked-room murder mystery.
