I love it when the post – Sherlock fictional detectives try to break off from the cerebral & egotistic tendencies which seem to have become a must have to qualify as an astute private eye . Still I was not prepared for someone like Kaga . He is not the super detective who creates a huge stir on his entrance – his interactions & investigations are too low key that he almost becomes yet another one in the host of characters ( !!! ) . There are no dramatic denouements or Holmesian / Herculean style dramatics with the discovery of some significant clue and yet Keigo manages to keep the reader turning the pages fast with yet another piece of the puzzle falling into place at the end of every section . In short , Kaga might be a wonder in the detective universe . . .
