Now the students who are staying in the house start getting murdered, one by one, sometimes even hands being cut off from their bodies (eeerily similar to the old series of murders).

and I'm fine being right as long as I'm constantly guessing, it's actually my best possible outcome. Anyway, just because I found this to be a banal and lacklustre read does not mean you should not give it a go.

However, things take a wild turn when the members of the mystery club get killed one by one, and the killer is just among them, hiding in plain sight. But from another perspective, the parallel between this novel and Agatha Christie’s seminal work And Then There Were None is also made plainly obvious. I wish the original names were introduced earlier on, so that the reader had enough time to map the nicknames to the real names. There's lots of room for red herrings, plot twists, and unexpected disclosures with its constrained setting and characters, dual narrative, and dual timeline. The split story always keeps you on the edge of your seat as you keep wondering what’s happening in the other storyline.

As the book builds towards its crescendo, the descriptions of the natural surroundings become poetic and ominous, in the tradition of the greatest Japanese literature. The Decagon House Murders ( Japanese: 十角館の殺人, Hepburn: Jukkakukan no Satsujin) is a Japanese manga series, based on Yukito Ayatsuji's novel of the same name, illustrated by Hiro Kiyohara. The Decagon House Murders pays homage to Agatha Christie's And then there were none, which is one of my fav books. It was serialized in Kodansha's seinen manga magazine Monthly Afternoon from August 2019 to April 2022, with its chapters collected in five tankōbon volumes.

Meanwhile, we are introduced to some peripherally related characters ashore who are involved in the situation. Ayatsuji honors the traditions of mystery’s honkaku, Japan’s take on the Golden Age puzzle-plot, while putting his own spin on the form. I think she got Poe to cover for her by telling him she could go undercover as a detective if everyone thought she was dead.
