Maruyama Masaki wrote a mystery book again. The book titled "Deaf Voice: a sign-language interpreter in the court" (311 pages/650 yen) was published by Bungei Shunju on August 4.
The story is goes: Arai Naoto became an interpreter at the age of 43. He was asked to interpret at a court. It reminds him of the bitter memory which concerns the murder case which has happened 17 years ago.
This book is the social mystery that the author delicately figures the environment surrounding a Deaf person with the use of both spoken language and sign language which forms the multistory narrative way.
