The Devotion of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino
I thoroughly enjoyed this translation of a best-selling Japanese novel. It's a murder mystery; however, the reader is made aware of the culprit by the end of chapter one. The book's suspense derives from a battle of wits between the physics genius who is trying to help the police solve the mystery and the math genius who is trying to protect the woman he loves. The suspense continues to mount as the math genius tries to outwit the physics and prevent him from unraveling the whole affair.
