Product Description

Stranded in the woods, Conan and his friends take shelter at a spooky old house—only to witness a seemingly supernatural murder. The knife-wielding old lady who lives there couldn’t be a witch…or could she?

Then Conan finds a lead in his ongoing investigation of Eisuke, Rachel’s suspicious new friend. But by the time he gets there, the source is dead and the information is missing. To get the facts, Conan has to solve the crime!

About the Author

Gosho Aoyama made his debut in 1992 with Chotto Matte (Wait a Minute), which won Shogakukan's prestigious Shinjin Comic Taisho (Newcomer's Award for Comics) and launched his career as a critically acclaimed, top-selling manga artist. In addition to Detective Conan, which won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 2001, Aoyama created the popular manga Yaiba, which won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1992. Aoyama's manga is greatly influenced by his boyhood love for mystery, adventure and baseball, and he has cited the tales of Arsene Lupin and Sherlock Holmes and the samurai films of Akira Kurosawa as some of his childhood favorites.

HASH(0xa5900d50) out of 5 stars Consistent mystery entertainment Oct. 13 2015
By Johanna Draper Carlson - Published on
Format: Paperback
Case Closed volume 56 begins with a whodunit I was immediately attracted to. A famous mystery novelist is going to be featured in a magazine piece, so he, detective Richard Moore, the interviewer, and the photographer spend the night at his house. After we observe him berating his editor over a small, obsessive point, they all retire for the night — but in the morning, the writer is found dead! The attention to detail, the publishing characters, and the classic locked-room structure all appealed to me.

I was also taken with the journalists comparing notes on why they’re still using “old” technology, like a recorder that uses tape instead of operating digitally. Of course, those affectations become part of the plot. There’s a whole bunch of telling, not showing, but the expressive characters drawn by Gosho Aoyama keep the art interesting even as everyone talks through what could have happened. I wish this story could have been longer, going into more detail, although the benefit of keeping it short is that it’s only one of four mysteries in this volume.

The second story starts with Conan, the kids, and the professor off on a camping trip. A flat tire in the middle of nowhere sets the stage for spookiness. A nearby house, all alone in a mountain forest, contains a scary old woman the kids think might be a witch. Then another group of campers, young adults with car trouble, arrive. In the middle of the night during a rainstorm, one of them is found murdered. Typical of the Japanese mysteries I’ve read, the clues and motive involve long memories and family ties.

The third story is of much less interest to me, as it continues the never-ending saga of the men in black, the conspiracy group responsible for adult Jimmy becoming the kid Conan. I gave up on them addressing this problem until the end of the series, so more stringing it out wasn’t compelling. There is a stand-alone mystery inside the setup, though, about trying to find a particular photo in a guy’s apartment.

The final short piece serves as a cautionary tale, about a scam that unfortunately occurs in real life, where an older person is called and told their grandchild is in trouble and needs money transferred immediately. I enjoy reading this series for its consistent level of escapist entertainment, but it’s quite an investment at this point. I’ve had good luck getting books from my local library; often, it doesn’t even matter what order you read them in. (The publisher provided a digital review copy. Review originally posted at
