占星術殺人事件 Read ✓ 8 Pada suatu malam bersalju tahun 1936 seorang seniman dipukuli hingga tewas di balik pintu studionya yang terkunci di Tokyo Polisi menemukan surat wasiat aneh yang memaparkan rencananya untuk menciptakan Azoth sang wanita sempurna dari potongan potongan tubuh para wanita muda kerabatnya Tak lama sesudah itu putri tertuanya dibunuh Lalu putri putrinya yang lain serta keponakan keponakan perempuannya tiba tiba menghilang Satu pe. My name s Kazumi Ishioka I m a huge fan of mysteries in fact they re almost an addiction If a week goes by without reading a mystery I suffer withdrawal symptoms Then I wander around like I m sleepwalking and wake up in a bookshop looking for a mystery novel I ve read just about every mystery story ever writtenBut of all the mysteries I ve read The Tokyo Zodiac Murders was without a doubt the most intriguing Kazumi is not only obsessed with mystery novels but he is also obsessed with his brilliant friend Kiyoshi Mitarai who is not overly ambitious but does get motivated when there is a puzzle to be worked out When Kazumi challenges him to solve the 40 year old mystery of the Tokyo Zodiac Murders he is intrigued enough to devote his little gray cells to the task of solving it Kiyoshi Mitarai s name means clean toilet which is humbling for even the most arrogant of men I think I d flip a few letters around or change my name completely but then it would probably be fine if his friend Kazumi didn t point it out to everyone they meet Kazumi is his Watson and as this investigation into the Tokyo Zodiac Murders continues he like Watson at many points in the Holmes stories begins to believe that he can find his own clues and make his own break in the case Which is simply adorable What he forgets is even when Kiyoshi doesn t seem to be doing anything he is still pondering the case I had often complained about Kiyoshi s oddity but I never doubted his talent his intelligence his knowledge and his powers of intuition Those were the good things about him But they lingered just on the other side of catastrophe This is a locked room mystery which harkens back to the golden age of British detective novels The writer in these types of books has to release information to the reader in such a way to inspire conjecture but not enough information to let the reader solve the case too uickly Certainly Soji Shimada accomplishes this He even pops into the novel at one point to say that the reader has all of the information reuired to solve the case which is a bit of a nana nana boo boo moment for this reader I am uite content to be spoon fed the solution at this point because my head is spinning but for some of you brilliant deductionists out there I m sure you would have the murders solved and the killer in mental handcuffs already An artist Heikichi Umezawa is murdered in his studio with no discernible way for the murderer to have left the room There are a few clues that only seem to make the crime baffling He is a painter of the astrology and working on a series of paintings of the zodiac upon his death What is fascinating is the discovery of his journal detailing his plans to create the perfect woman from the chopped up pieces of his female family members He has notes saying which woman has the best thighs the best breasts the best torso and so on He wants to create the most beautiful of Frankenstein s monsters This is certainly disturbing but what is disturbing is that after his death seven of the women are killed and dismembered What Wait But he s dead What madness is this The case isn t any easier because it is forty years old Witnesses have died or moved away The investigation is beyond cold It is Arctic Little did the original investigators know but all the pieces were there for them to solve the case forty years ago Fortunately Japan s version of Sherlock Holmes who is not addicted to cocaine or as showy with his deductions is on the case Speaking of Holmes there is this funny bit in the book where Kiyoshi is critical of Holmes and Kazumi takes exception We do find ourselves defending our fictional friends from time to time don t we If you like books to tease your brain then warm up some sake and stir up some miso soup You will need to be properly fortified to ponder away as Shimada unspools the clues If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at

Review 占星術殺人事件占星術殺人事件

占星術殺人事件 Read ✓ 8 R satu mayat mereka yang termutilasi ditemukan semua dikubur sesuai dengan prinsip astrologis yang diuraikan sang senimanPembantaian misterius itu mengguncang Jepang menyibukkan pihak berwenang dan para detektif amatir namun tirai misteri tetap tak terpecahkan selama lebih dari 40 tahun Lalu pada suatu hari di tahun 1979 sebuah dokumen diserahkan kepada Kiyoshi Mitarai astrolog peramal nasib dan detektif eksentrik Dengan dida. Pre war Japan A deranged artist called Heikichi Umezawa claims to be possessed by the Devil He plans one final masterwork the creation of Azoth the supreme woman How to make her Chop up the bodies of his six daughters selecting their most perfect parts and stitching the pieces together into a whole But before he can begin he s brutally murdered A few days later the six daughters are also killed and their bodies chopped up per Umezawa s plan Who killed Umezawa Who killed the six girls And if Azoth the supreme woman was created where is she 40 years pass and astrologer detective Kiyoshi Mitarai is joined by our narrator Ishioka to solve the mystery in a week who was behind the Tokyo Zodiac Murders Soji Shimada s detective novel is pretty good for the first half pretty bad for the second While I enjoyed the first half it s a bit artlessly written the Holmesian Mitarai and the Watson esue Ishioka are literally sat in a room telling the reader through their discourse the details of the crime But it s morbidly interesting stuff and the locked room mystery aspect to it is tantalising Things get a bit bogged down in the second half as Shimada tries to bring it all together Mitarai and Ishioka separate while the reader is stuck with Ishioka as he follows numerous red herrings waiting for Mitarai to reappear and tell us whodunit And when he does he irritatingly milks the attention for all its worth in the final uarter stopping and starting to gloat Shimada doesn t help by literally intruding the narrative twice to encourage the reader to try and figure it out themselves That s because Tokyo Zodiac is part of the honkaku authentic genre of detective fiction where the clues are laid out in the text which supposedly gives the reader all they need to solve the case themselves Diagrams maps etc pepper the book Except given the utterly convoluted explanation I m not sure that s entirely true of this novel I didn t spend any time thinking about it and just went with the story And then it turns out to be an unsatisfying reveal anyway I didn t hate the novel because the first half effortlessly held my attention but it s not a great detective story for the weak conclusion Still The Tokyo Zodiac Murders isn t a bad creepy mystery story that some crime fans might enjoy I d recommend it with the caveat to lower expectations going in to maybe get out of it
