From the book cover:
The Changeling introduces Kogito, writer in his early sixties, who receives a mysterious package from his childhood friend and estranged brother-in-law. Goro has sent him a trunk of tapes with recorded reflections on their relationship, and after receiving it, Kogito learns his lifelong friend has jumped to his death. However, Goro's voice continues to spead, promising Kogito that he will remain in contact from the Other Side. Kogito listens obsessively and embarks on a far-ranging search to understand what drove his brother-in-law to suicide, a journey that spans the forests of Japan to the streets of Berlin, where Kogito confronts the ghosts from his own past and Goro's.

This book start out very slow (might be the literary aspect) and for my feeling the real story just starts on the last 100 pages. Here things get interesting and surprising.
