The Decagon House Murders
by Yukito Ayatsuji (1987); trans. Ho-Ling Wong (Locked Room, 2015)
audiobook read by P J Ochlan (Tantor, 2022)
Perhaps this novel suffers in translation. The English version features an ingenuous prose style full of grade-school descriptors and third-person narrative action shoehorned quite blithely into dialogue. The mystery, laboriously solved in recap, works far better conceptually than as a dramatic work.
