Summary
Yasudo is working at a sandwich shop and beginning to feel optimistic about her future when her ex-husband, Togashi, stops in. Abusive and unpredictable, he follows her home and ends up dead on the floor. Ishigami, a math teacher and neighbor who secretly admires Yasudo, offers to help, and when the body is found, Detective Kusanagi of the Tokyo police is called in to investigate. With the help of his friend Dr. Yukawa, a physicist, they begin to investigate, matching wits with the brilliant Ishigami.
Critique
A tense whirlwind of twists and turns, this beautifully crafted mystery is endlessly surprising. Highly recommend.
