Description

When three delinquents hole up in an
abandoned general store after their most recent robbery, to their great
surprise, a letter drops through the mail slot in the store's shutter. This
seemingly simple request for advice sets the trio on a journey of discovery as,
over the course of a single night, they step into the role of the kindhearted
former shopkeeper who devoted his waning years to offering thoughtful counsel to
his correspondents. Through the lens of time, they share insight with those
seeking guidance, and by morning, none of their lives will ever be the same. By
acclaimed author Keigo Higashino,
The Miracles of the Namiya
General Store is a work that has
touched the hearts of readers around the world.

Review quote

"More than a time travel mystery, the story is a rather earnest tale of human decision-making, and the author is adept at drawing an emotional response from readers. Inventive and always surprising, this book is easy to get drawn into and difficult to put down."--Kirkus Reviews
