Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (book)

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (右代宮 戦人, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, lit. When the Cicadas Cry) is a book written by Kuraudo Ooishi and Mamoru Akasaka. The book is meant as a sort of memoir about the serial murders in Hinamizawa as well as the investigation into those murders. The only known excerpt from the book is the ending:

Why did this tragedy occur?
The two of us can't get to the truth.
Whoever reads this book,
please solve the mystery and find the truth.

That's our wish.

Ooishi Kuraudo - Akasaka Mamoru
