Naoko by Keigo Higashino, translated by Kerim Yasar [in AsianWeek]

NaokoThe looming question at the end of this fantastical novel is: “Is she or isn’t she?”

Naoko and her young daughter Monami are one of the few to survive a horrific bus crash. But Naoko is fatally injured, and Monami is in a brain-damage-induced coma. When Naoko dies, Monami magically reawakens – only her consciousness is Naoko’s. Got that so far? That’s just the first 20 pages. But when Monami’s consciousness returns, Naoko’s must recede – right …?
